Irati is the most ambitious film to be made in Spain in recent years, both in terms of the scale of the production and its fantasy-epic genre. It is the first ever Medieval ‘sword and sorcery’ movie to be made in the country.
A film of battles, spectacular locations and an ambitious production design, all of which have been made possible thanks to the support of organizations and TV companies such as ICAA, the Basque Government, EITB, RTVE, the Provincial Council of Álava, the Council of Vitoria-Gasteiz and the Provincial Council of Gipuzkoa.
Besides the talented director, Paul Urkijo, we have been blessed with a first-class crew, many of whom are Goya Award winners in their fields. With such an outstanding team, the quality of this ambitious project is guaranteed.
The post-production stage is equally ambitious, in terms of the large amount of VFX in the movie: the mythological creatures such as the gigantic Sugaar, the mysterious Basajaun or the powerful goddess of fire, Mari, played by Itziar Ituño. On top of this, there are also meteorologic VFX, clean-up of on-screen objects and historical reconstructions.
And let’s not forget the thrilling soundtrack and superb sound editing with Dolby Atmos. Irati has been designed to be no less than an epic experience.
Irati is a film born from local legends, but whose nature is international. Our desire is for it to reach homes all around the world.
