Last night, I tried to explain to Nico, Guille and Álex that they still don’t know much about the content of this news. Who is he and what my friend David did, he was assassinated for trying to find the truth in Burkina Faso. After the unsuccessful mention of Robert Capa and Kapusinski (“He is fighting for the kids football”, but not so), The only thing that happened to me was to tell you that I am a reporter like a reporter in a movie. As Mel Gibson From The year we lived dangerously or Sam Waterstone From Silent screams. Or, more like David Nick Nolte From Under the fire. Although, in fact, he wears the majestic beard of the king on the deck and looks a lot like (except David Gistau, To powerful actors Jason Clarke He has worked as a CIA agent, astronaut, John Conner and Ted Kennedy, but has never been a reporter like David.
My three children were still very young, so they protested: they didn’t know what the reporter was like in the movie, because they hadn’t seen the movie yet. Because there are no longer films cooperating with reporters. Because there are no more reporters like my friends.
The best way to explain to the children is on the bedside table, tell me what a reporter friend from Artajona is doing and his state, and then we start reading Pharaoh’s Cigar ÿ Blue lotus In memory of David. We only need to exchange Tintin for Beriain. They fully understand.
Therefore, my children have found that David Beriain is the best, bravest, passionate and stubborn person. David Beriain embodies the ideal of pure journalism, which is an adventure to tell stories at the risk of his life. By his side, his reporter friends are nothing.
I met him on the first day of college in Pamplona. I come from a law major and I am a few years older than the second-year news pipiolos, which is an absurd advantage. That afternoon, he brought me a sweater and army boots and made me fall from the cherry tree: I saw a 19-year-old boy who had more roads than quiet corners. This is the confused teacher of the advertising introduction: “If I want to be a journalist and introduce it to the world, why should I study this kind of advertising?” We quickly became friends, his town Artajona was close to my Olite, and we shared the dreams of parties, football, film and journalists in a gang. He achieved all of these.
Start very early Demonstrating his passion for storytelling and getting into trouble. He didn’t talk about country festivals on country festivals like in summer, nor did he report on members’ press conferences in provincial newspapers like other newspapers. Instead, he spent their time in Argentina and studied trade seriously: He risked his life to find the local mafia in the newspaper Libertarian From Santiago del Estero (Santiago del Estero). And the chronicles he wrote to them later Voice of Galicia, DNA Ø this country Among them, they formed a corpus full of intentions. In order to discover the truth. Used to calculate the world from the worst lighting perspective.There have been few reports in the media recently, but He is a pure writer, with great power, and he is outspoken with the accuracy of the surgeon.
He soon discovered his audiovisual aspects and photographers like his adventurers. I think he admired them more than journalists, and he began to feel the desire for the lens. The report is his weapon, so he started to lead his own project, After years of working in the shadow of other bosses like Jon Sistiaga, Production and title documentary series, such as Secret Amazon ÿ secret It has been broadcast in half of the world.As a news medium, many of their reports are released as feature films, and Fernando Urena: Yasuní, genocide in the jungle (2014), The Lost CIA Army (2016) o Latino on death row (2018).
Little known His excellent short film Percebeiros, Perhaps it is the first audio-visual work he has created himself, and he is proud of it. I still remember those days when he was shortlisted for Goya’s best documentary short film in 2012. After he failed to get nominated, he was disappointed by not being able to walk on the red carpet. We had arranged to meet again.
David Beriain is a straightforward man without any pretensions. He accomplished the most difficult thing: to make a difference with a very simple weapon. Navarro tells you seriously, how he entered Iraq in the double bottom of the truck that crossed Syria and crossed the Syrian war. He never paid attention to it and never exceeded his expectations. Curiosity, desire to learn, passion for real stories, passion for providing lighting for students to visit the college, commitment to the stories of those most in need, and stubbornness to trouble getting into trouble whenever she plans a new one When taking risks, her mother suffers.
Among all his humanistic characteristics, I, a selfish man who cannot extricate himself, insisted that he had to stop participating in his first emergency escape route on the day before the wedding in Galicia and travel to one of these countries. A conflict occurs. Always on the agenda. From there, on the phone, his voice sounded calm: before going out the street again, to the jungle, to the beach, risking his life, his only concern was to know who paid him for this hotel A room reserved for guests in Coruna. That will not appear in the movie.
