Boise’s Javi Zubizarreta will be in town for a screening of his latest film, “Zuretzako: ‘For You’," a film tribute to his grandfather Joquine at 7 p.m. Aug. 18 at the Egyptian Theatre, 700 W. Main St., Boise. Tickets are $10 at the box office.
The film stars Zubizarreta’s father, Luis as his grandfather, “Aitxitxe” Joquine and his brother Josu as a younger version of his grandfather and his father as a young man.
Javi Zubizarreta grew up nurtured by Boise’s Basque community, hearing stories of his grandfather’s generation who braved the journey to emigrate from the Spanish Basque country to Idaho. He filmed in Boise last October. He studied film at Notre Dame University. This is his thesis project.
In 2010, Zubizarreta won the Cary Grant Film Award from the Princess Grace Foundation that helped finance the production.
