    Cinema Club: Negotiator

    In the film, "Negociator," Manu Aranguren is a Basque politician who acts as a mediator for the Spanish government in its negotiations with ETA. Far from being a solemn, calculated occasion, unexpected occurrences, slip-ups or misunderstandings soon kick in to influence the dialogue. And the personal relationship between negotiators will be key in solving the conflict.

     

    Euskadi Ta Askatasuna (“Basque Country and Freedom”), better known by its acronym ETA, is a Basque separatist group that proclaims itself nationalist, socialist and revolutionary, and made use of violence to reach its objectives. Since 1976, Spanish governments successively established contacts with the organization to have it cease its terrorist activities. In 2011, the organization announced its decision to cease all armed activities. These historical facts serve as backdrop for the film:
