Sergio Oksman / 14’ / 2009 / Spain.
On July 7, 1961, the day Ernest Hemingway was buried, one of his most famous impersonators was seen at the Festival of San Fermín in Pamplona. That strange appearance was merely a signal that, from that moment onwards, the figure of the famous writer would last in time via a throng of impersonators.
The movie was shot during Pamplona’s Festival of San Fermín in 2008, in Key West (Florida) and in the house where Hemingway committed suicide in Ketchum (Idaho). One of the main characters is Pío Guerendiáin, a methodical and constant photographer who has spent more than 50 years taking pictures of the “encierros” (running of bulls in the streets) from the very same corner.
