International buyers are moving in on Spanish filmmaker Estibaliz Urresola Solaguren’s Berlinale Competition title 20.000 Species Of Bees.

Paris-based sales Luxbox has sold the debut film to Benelux (September Film), Switzerland (Cineworx), Poland (Gutek Film) and Taiwan (Swallow Wings Film).

20.000 Species Of Bees, is the story of a young child who explores her identity during a summer vacation in her mother’s hometown in the Basque Country.  The women of her family, and her mother in particular (played by Patricia Lopez Arnaiz), also reflect on their own lives.

The film participated in the Berlinale Co-Production Market in 2022.  

Urresola Solaguren’s  short film  Cuerdas premiered at the Critics’ Week in Cannes last year.
