Armendáriz, Montxo


Armendáriz, Montxo
b. 1949, Olleta (Navarre)
   Filmmaker
   After a series of shorts on regional themes, such as Rivera navarra (Navarrese Riverside), his first film Tasio (1984), produced by Elías Querejeta, was well received. Since then his films have explored contemporary social problems of teenage suicide and drug addiction, as in 27 horas (27 Hours) (1986), of immigration, as in the prize-winning Las cartas de Alou (Alou's Letters) (1990), and of the violent anarchic youth of Madrid in Historias del Kronen (Kronen Stories) (1994). With Secretos del corazón (Secrets of the Heart) (1996), enthusiastically received at Berlin, he has returned to the warmth and intimacy of his first film.
