Antzar Eguna


Documentary directed by Fernando Acquarone and Diego Hurtado de Mendoza about the festivities of Antzar Eguna in Lekeitio, a fishing village in the Basque Country, Spain.
Antzar Eguna profiles the organizers of this traditional event in which local youngsters show their strength by hanging from the neck of a dead goose while being violently thrown into the waters of the town’s port.
It is also an exploration on the unexpected effects of the threat of avian flu that swept the world in 2007.
