Published 17/11/2016

The documentary Campo a Través continues gaining praises at international festivals of cinema. Thus, last October 29th it was rewarded at the Meraki International Film Fest. After its premiere at the San Sebastian International Film Festival and its screening at the Berlinale, BAFICI, DocsBarcelona, Transatlantyk Film Festival and MAFICI 2016, the ethnological and philosophical documentary about Mugaritz directed by the furor Pep Gatell, the past October 29th, won the Best Documentary Award of the first International Film Festival of the Guadalquivir Valley.

The director Pep Gatell distils what they consider essential in this world, their most intimate philosophies. The ideas behind the work, the way trouble is overcome, what is suffered and enjoyed, what excellence means to them; to sum up, how Mugaritz is created and destroyed constantly. Risk is constant, that is the idea behind the title, but it’s also proof of the wisdom that comes from the effort and work of many people that have been, are and will be in Mugaritz; a place where the culinary goal has been surpassed by the creative process and its possible variations.
