Juan is a mediator who tried to achieve peace between ETA and the Spanish Government in the 1990s. Roberto is a spy with the Secret Services who infiltrated Juan’s life for years. This documentary, which at times seems like an investigative thriller, charts how the two cultivate an unusual friendship, despite the betrayal. Director Ana Schulz is Juan’s daughter and the film is also a chronicle of the filmmakers’ relationship with the spy and how difficult they found it to trap his elusive identity. The film premiered at Locarno Film Festival and opened San Sebastian Film Festival. 

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with co-director Ana Schulz.
