Huelva Ibero-American Film Festival “The Light”

For this 40th edition of the Huelva Ibero-American Film Festival “The Light”, Iñigo started from the origins of Huelva.

Wanting to involve the city of origin of the film festival, he uses copper as the main material of the works, making a nod to the original Riotinto Mines in Huelva.

As the name of the festival indicates, the “The Light” award refers to the recognition of people and institutions that give “light” to culture with their work. This award was awarded, among others, to Mario Casas, Belen Cuesta, Aitana Sánchez Gijón, Soledad Villamil and the Valladolid City Council in recognition of Seminci, another film festival held annually in that city.

The sculpture represents the sun and at the same time the culture, where “The Light” is concentrated, in this case the talent. The beams of light, would be the “illuminated” and therefore awarded people, who have stood out with their outstanding work that together with copper, reminds where the award is from, completing the work.
