Querejeta, Elías


Querejeta, Elías
b. 1935, Hernani (Guipuzcoa)
   Film producer and scriptwriter
   Madrid-based Basque producer and promoter of art cinema, Querejeta was associated with the most representative movements of dissident cinema in the 1960s and 1970s: the New Spanish Cinema and the Madrid Independents, among them the award-winners Carlos Saura and Víctor Erice. His shaping influence extends to the generations of Basque filmmakers of the 1980s and 1990s. Querejeta's distinctive style is characterized by expressive silences, austere scenography and a metaphorical use of the camera. He is also the father of the filmmaker Gracia Querejeta (Madrid, 1962) who made her début in 1993 with Una estación de paso (A Passing Season).
