Synopsis

Powerful and controversial documentary about the Basque nationalist movement, directed by filmmaker Julio Medem ('Sex and Lucia', 'The Red Squirrel'). Medem mixes atmospheric landscape shots, footage of Basque traditions, archive images from the Franco dictatorship, excerpts of films (such as the travelogue from Orson Welles' 'Around the World'), and the testimonials of Basque people including poets and politicians, priests and terrorists, to paint this intricate portrait of a complex and volatile political situation.

Contains torture references and bombing horror images
