Beldur Barik audiovisual competition shows its attitude against violence against women


Sestao hosted the Topaketa Beldur Barik 2022 this Friday, with the award ceremony of the audiovisual contest, where it showed, once again, its attitude against violence against women and in favor of an egalitarian society.

The winning films were signed by young people from Ondarroa,
Vitoria-Gasteiz, Erandio, Bergara, Bilbao, Iurreta and San Sebastián, and one of the main issues they addressed was the right of girls to live “free and without fear”, precisely the main theme of the song Beldur Barik of this year “Libre”, by singer Izaro.

The Beldur Barik Meeting is part of the program organized by the Department of Equality, Justice and Social Policies and Emakunde, in collaboration with the Provincial Councils of Álava, Bizkaia and Gipuzkoa, and Eudel.

The young people took part in different workshops in the afternoon during which they worked on topics such as feminist self-defense, empowerment through dance, girls and video games, healthy food, feminist rap or masculinities, among others. Later, after performing in a street parade, the award ceremony for the Beldur Barik competition was held at the School of Music. Libe Pradera, Julen Portillo and Iholdi Beristain presented the gala.

This year the age of participation in the competition was reduced to 20 years, in which young people from 12 to 20 years old participated (in previous years young people from 26 years old could do it) and, despite this, they presented More of 300 works, most produced in groups.


In the first category (12 to 14 years old), where the most works were presented (almost half, 44%), the winning work was “Aske bizi”, from Ondarroa. “There has been an important development process and also the involvement of the boys,” Emakunde pointed out.

A special mention was given to ¡Queremos que nos se escucha!, which comes from Vitoria-Gasteiz, from the Judimendi-Arana street education program. The participants of this work made a “deep reflection” on the gender-based violence they experience on a daily basis.

The second category includes works by young people aged 15 to 17 (36% of the works), and in this case the prize went to “Gure Gorputzak gureak ote dira? », presented by the Jado de Erandio school. The team spent a lot of time making this video and used lots of templates and references.

The special mention was for ‘Bizitzarengatik Borrokan’, a music video format video sent from Bergara. It is a song composed by the same participants.

As for the works presented by young people aged 18 to 20 (15% of the works), in the third category the first prize went to ‘Samsara-Renacer’, presented from Bilbao.
In this case, the authors translated a very combative message and gave a historical vision to the work.

The special mention, on the other hand, went to Iurreta, “Libre Izan Nahi dut, ez Ausart”. This video perfectly reflects “the fear that the girls feel when it’s time to go home at night, they have reclaimed the insults and a collective empowerment is observed at the end”.

The prize for the best audiovisual work was awarded to San Sebastián and was won by the work ‘Puntuka’. It is a “very original and artistic” piece, which shows the violence suffered by women on a daily basis. They used clothing and clothing as a resource for empowerment.

Finally, in terms of popular vote, that is, the work that received the most votes via the web page (with 1,007 votes), was “Rolak Irauli”. As the highlight of the awards ceremony, singer Izaro Andrés performed live performing his songs Paris, Erohori and Libre.
