IXA – first vertical Basque web series format / Interview with the author and director Egoitz Diaz Ibargoitia
IXA is the first Basque web series to be created exclusively vertically, meaning it is meant to be watched on your phone. In order to create a new way of promoting audio-visual consumption in Basque, especially among younger people, the series was recorded entirely in Basque. The series addresses different themes, with each episode always following a common thread – Time. IXA includes six independent episodes which explore the use of time and the way we see it. Each episode tells a story of an individual in an everyday situation, culminating in a dramatic climax. The first season consists of six chapters, each lasting no more than 10 minutes and taking place in different “non-places.”

How Crises of Faith can affect one’s identity and the role of Society / Interview with Tijuana Ricks about her series All Souls
All Souls – this is the name of the American series and the name of the church in which the story is told. But also, thematically, the title fits like no other. All people are included; no one should be excluded based on any quality or attitude. But what if it does happen? What happens when everything that was previously considered normal and understandable is questioned? What happens when a pastor questions his faith? This is precisely what the web series All Souls is about, crises of faith and questions of identity within society.
