Isaki Lacuesta


(Girona, 1975)

A graduate of the first master’s degree in Creative Documentary at the Pompeu Fabra University, he sets his films at the limits between fiction and non-fiction. Since his debut with Cravan vs Cravan (2002), he has written and directed nine feature films, among them Entre dos aguas (2018) which, returning to the characters of La leyenda del tiempo (2006), received a Concha de Oro award at the San Sebastian International Film Festival (the second time he has received this prize). His films have been shown at festivals around the world and in art centres like the CCCB, the MOMA, the Lincoln Center, and Anthology Film Archives, while his complete filmography has been shown in retrospectives such as those programmed at the Pompidou Centre in Paris, the National Gallery in Washington, and the Swiss, Spanish, and Catalan Film Archives. He was a curator, together with Jelena Prokopljevic and Jaume Prat, of the Catalan Pavilion in the Venice Biennale of Architecture in 2016. Also significant are his incursions into the world of art with installations for exhibitions, as well as joint projects with architects (RCR), painters (Miquel Barceló, Frederic Amat, Antoni Tàpies), musicians (Albert Pla, Pau Riba, Refree), and other filmmakers (his filmic correspondence with the Japanese producer Naomi Kawase, In between Days [2009, CCCB], was presented at the Locano Film Festival). He received the 2012 National Prize for Cinematography of the Generalitat (Government) of Catalonia, the Sant Jordi Prize (2002, 2017), and the Eloy de la Iglesia Prize (2010, Festival de Málaga), among other awards. He is presently working on his latest film, Un año, una noche.
