Agirre Lehendakaria is a documentary directed by Francesc Escribano. It's part of an EiTB audiovisual project that looks back at the figure and values of Jose Antonio Agirre, who 80 years ago was the first president (lehendakari) of the Basque Government. The documentary's cornerstone is the presence of actor Daniel Grao who, after receiving the offer to play lehendakari Agirre, sets off on a search for the character. The documentary accompanies Grao on his journey exploring the lehendakari's personal and sentimental geography with the objective of composing a human portrait of the historic Basque leader and being able to play him.This is the starting point of the film, an innovative set up that reinvents documental biography and introduces elements of fiction.
