Life goes on: market vendors manage their stalls, domestic animals are moved to bamboo platforms, schoolbags are lifted from classroom floors. In houses that flood, furniture is modified with longer legs, and outdoor cooking fires are raised onto purpose-built scaffolds.
It was such a chance meeting, says Isla. „The window of opportunity in which we met was really a few seconds. If the light had been green, we probably wouldn’t be here.“ Valente must be pleased to have decided to catch up with her once she sped off, I say. He smiles and says: „On her birthday, I gave her a new bicycle.“
It has given me great pleasure over the past decade to see the rehabilitation of offal, not only on smart restaurant menus but, even more thrillingly, in the repertoire of home cooks. Many have thrown off squeamish timidity and embraced true nose-to-tail eating with gusto. Or even with guts.

Determined to serve neeps and tatties on the 25th, I will be baking potatoes to accompany the oxtail. They will be baked in a round pan, sliced as thinly as my amateur knifemanship will permit, each slice tossed with olive oil and salt and rosemary.

To make the sauce, finely chop the herbs and put in a bowl with the capers, anchovies and garlic. Add the mustard, seasoning and vinegar, toss, then add enough oil to loosen the mix to a spoonable consistency.
Starring Elena Anaya, Louis Garrel and Gina Gershon, Rifkin’s Festival was shot in and around the city in 2019, and according to the plot synopsis takes place during the festival itself. „It tells the story of a married American couple who go to the San Sebastián festival and get caught up in the magic of the event, the beauty and charm of the city and the fantasy of movies.

Jamero said staged relocations – where people move to larger islands for forecast major weather events, such a king tides coinciding with typhoons – was negotiated between the islanders and government officials.
Rifkin’s Festival was backed by Spanish media giant Mediapro (which has participated in Allen films including Vicky Cristina Barcelona and Midnight in Paris) as Allen has become increasingly shunned in the US after Farrow’s allegations against him, which he denies. Publication of his memoir Apropos of Nothing was cancelled by Hachette after staff protests, and it was rapidly picked up by another publisher, Arcade.

They talked for a couple of hours – about music, film, their interests – then Valente invited her back to his friend’s house. She went, but soon left. „I didn’t want it all to happen that night. I went home and the next day he messaged me inviting me to his house.“ A few months later, she says: „Valente said: ‘I never asked you, by the way – do you want to be my girlfriend?‘ We were together, but I guess we became official.“
