‘No me llame Ternera’, by Jordi Évole and Mŕrius Sánchez, to complete the Made in Spain section

The documentary takes a harsh and innovative look at the figure of the ETA terrorist organisation’s former leader, Josu Urrutikoetxea


No me llame Ternera, the documentary co-directed by Jordi Évole and Mŕrius Sánchez, will open Made in Spain and complete this section showcasing another 19 important Spanish features of the year. The film brings an exclusive interview between Évole and Josu Urrutikoetxea, who goes by the nickname of Josu Ternera, and takes a harsh and innovative look at his background as leader of the ETA terrorist organisation.

The film screening as a world premiere, will also look at some of ETA’s decisive moments until it disbanded in 2018. In addition, the tense and exhaustive conversation with Urrutikoetxea, a key figure in the organisation structure, enables one victim of ETA to solve the mysteries surrounding the attack he suffered almost 50 years ago.

Jordi Évole (Cornellŕ de Llobregat, 1974) is a well-known journalist in Spain who has received five Ondas Awards, the last one in 2021, for the documentary Eso que tú me das, including the last interview given by the singer Pau Donés. Having started out as a screenwriter and comedian alongside Andreu Buenafuente, in 2008 he launched the programme dedicated to social criticism, Salvados. In 2015, with Ramon Lara, he founded Producciones del Barrio and since 2019 until today has fronted the programme Lo de Évole.

For her part, the journalist Mŕrius Sánchez (Barcelona, 1982) has been working in the audiovisual world for more than 20 years and has been producing scripts and content for 15 alongside Jordi Évole in projects including SalvadosOperación Palace and Eso que tú me das. She has been co-directing Lo de Évole on Spanish TV’s La Sexta channel since 2020.  

“We have made this film because we have a responsibility towards the history of our country, which is partly marked by the terrorism of ETA, and we felt it was a unique opportunity to interview someone who belonged to that terrorist organisation. It is also essential that the film serves as an educational tool for the whole generation that has decided to forget or not to look at this very recent episode of our history. It is an exercise in historical memory”, said Évole and Sánchez about a film that, after its premiere at the Festival, will be available in Netflix.

A total of 20 feature films will make up Made in Spain, San Sebastian Festival’s non-competitive section showcasing Spanish films of the year. At the 71st edition, to run from 22-30 September, six of these titles will screen as world premieres, while the remainder have already been programmed at other international events or have had their commercial release.
