Breaking down barriers to communication

Basque Country. Direction: Jorge Gil Munárriz. Direction assistant: José Mari Goenaga. Executive production: Jon Garaño / Moriarti Produkzioak. Screenplay: Jorge Gil Munárriz. Photography: Javi Agirre. Music: Pascal Gaigne. Edition: Ibon Olaskoaga. Running time: 89 min


Siblings Lourdes and Mentxu Arrieta understand one another with a look. And the expression is particularly pertinent in this case: unable to control their body movements due to motor disorder, the two communicate by writing letters in the air with their eyes. They’ve been communicating like that for 30 years: thanks to their eyes, in silence, in a manner that seems never to have existed before. But there’s more. They are convinced that the “Arrieta method” –as they themselves christened it– could be very useful for a vast numbers of people in the world and offer them enormous communication possibilities. That’s why they want it to be known on all five continents... So that it can change many lives.

Coloquio: Jorge Gil Munárriz (director), Lourdes and Mentxu Arrieta (main characters)
