Aitziber Olaskoaga
Spain, 39 min
International Premiere

From the Basque Country to La Mancha, Non-Stop is a journey along a road of forbidden images, denied interviews and places that do not appear on any map. Faced with these successive silences and denials, Aitziber Olaskoaga wonders how film can still represent what was quickly buried in the national memory during the post- Franco years. 

In line with the approach of a new generation of Spanish filmmakers (Eloy Enciso, Luis López Carrasco), Aitziber Olaskoaga wonders how film can still represent what was quickly buried in the national memory by the post-Franco years. Non-Stop is a journey along a road of refused images, denied interviews and places that do not appear on maps. From the Basque Country to La Mancha, home to Spain’s first high-security prison, the film crew comes up against a succession of refusals and silences. Taking on the words of the American poet Adrienne Rich—“Whatever is undepicted in images [...] will become, not merely unspoken, but unspeakable.”—the filmmaker invents her own system to rewrite History. In the magnificent final shot recounting all that is impossible to see, the film closes with the motto of the Guardia Civil: “All for the homeland.” In this way, Olaskoaga ends up justifying the necessity of her work, ironically recalling the absence of those in power with regard to her mission.
