Akelarre Leze

When one descends the stairs that lead up to the main cavity, in whose top galleries Sorgin Leze, found it is easy to get carried away by the atmosphere and imagine the covens which were held there. Legends, rituals, banquet presided over by the devil filled the Grotto known as the Sorgin Leze (cave of the Witches) a walk in more open end of the tunnel, and Akelarre Leze (the coven Cave), in the narrowest part. The story takes us back until 1610, when the Inquisition decided to punish without mercy to the inhabitants of Zugarramurdi. Accused of witchcraft, the Inquisition indicted in Logrono thirty residents of the area, the vast majority women. On 7 and 8 November this year, sentencing.

Eleven were sentenced to death at the stake (five of them in effigy, had died in prison) victims of the torture to which they were subjected). This cave is joined with Urdazubi-Urdax and Sara through a trail of little difficulty of something more than six kilometers and a half, marked with a blue horse. A Museum, a bridge between the past and present life in Zugarramurdi changed when some of its residents were prosecuted for practicing witchcraft. Little is known of the motives that led to the inhabitants to think that their neighbors worship the Devil (envy, cultural, political and religious differences), but since then the legends walk its streets and are transmitted to all who arrive eager to know every last detail of this story. The Museum of witches becomes link to learn about the past of this town in the present but also, how in the world today gets used to launch unjustified witch hunts.

Bolivian Highlands

RAFA VIDIELLA actor leads an international cast in the western Blackthorn, Mateo Gil orders. Note the crisis. As we continue, by 2012 there will be four Spanish films. Stronger than other times, Eduardo Noriega he looks very happy by Blackthorn, which embodies a Spanish who, defying danger, just as a partner of a legendary thief. How it gets one in a Spanish western filmed in Bolivia? I read the screenplay seven years ago and I was already interested. When he joined the Matthew project, was wonderful: roll with it, in the Bolivian Highlands, has marked me for life.

It must be difficult to work there there is no infrastructure to do Cinema and roads are eternal and horrible, but it’s an adventure. In the midst of filming he picked up the horse and saw incredible places. And on the screen, rode next to Butch Cassidy Era daring: Cassidy had been portrayed by Paul Newman in a legendary film, two men and a destination, and to the world he was. So in handsome, with Robert Redford on the side but beware with Sam Shephard. With that face, that plant, and that voice is Cassidy. Will go public to see it? It is a risky film, but the Spaniards are very identified with that genre. We have seen much and we recognize the characters, their motivations as an actor, is a joy: you put hat and spurs, you get on a horse and is half done! In addition, allowing to make playfulness of this profession.

You live it as a kid, rolling on the ground and hitting shots. Do you like on the screen? As in any artistic manifestation, you always stay with the feeling of having been able to do more. I am very self-critical. We need to grow, but without going to crush you. He never was afraid go left? To act, it is essential to have confidence in yourself. But you have to play with that limit: If you spend if you’re sobrado, you just give a very large host. If you think the master of the track, you’ve screwed up. I’ve seen in a theatre school colleague, makes 15 years: it was already very good, but it was believed the most handsome and best. Now works, but very little. Having too much security in one is so unfortunate as not to believe in yourself. And you, how does now? I can’t complain, because you can see the crisis. This year is going to be very bad: as we thus continue in 2012 will premiere four Spanish films. Source of the news: Eduardo Noriega: “if as actor vas de sobrado you just by giving the host”
