A BASQUE-language film has been selected to represent Spain at the Oscars for the first time.

Loreak was premiered at the San Sebastian film festival last year, and was the first Basque production to be nominated for best film at the Goyas.

Jon Garaño and Jose Mari Goenaga’s feature focuses on a woman receiving flowers from a mystery admirer.

The last Spanish film to bag a Best Foreign Language Oscar was Alejandro Amenábar’s The Sea Inside (Mar adentro) in 2004.
