Victor Erice - Alumbramiento

I recently discovered that the great Spanish film director Victor Erice was born in Carranza, Vizcaya in 1940 not that far from my home town, about 25km away in fact. Here is a short film he made called "Alumbramiento". It was part of a larger project called Ten minutes older. It seems to me, I can't be certain, that this film was made in Carranza or certainly in this part of Vizcaya, the architecture and landscape looks all very familiar. Jorge Luis Borges said once that "with the passing of time every poem becomes an elegy"...
