La pelota vasca, la piel contra la piedra / The Basque Game, Skin Against the Stone
Zabaltegi Specials

Basque reality can be considered from several angles. Julio Medem's point of view is not the only option, but it does take a look at the subject, questioning itself and asking questions about the past, the present and the future of The Basque Country. Based on hours and hours of interviews with Basque citizens, archive material and a splendid soundtrack, Medem offers us a documentary that will leave no-one indifferent.
Born in San Sebastian, Julio Medem is one of the Spanish directors of greatest international renown. His filmography includes Vacas (Cows, 1992), Goya for Best New Director, La ardilla roja (The Red Squirrel, 1993), Audience Award for Best Foreign Film at Cannes, Tierra (Earth, 1996), presented at the Cannes Official Selection and Best Spanish Film at Valladolid, Los amantes del Círculo Polar (The Lovers of the Arctic Circle, 1998), in competition at Venice, and Lucía y el sexo (Sex and Lucia, 2001), Goya for Best Emerging Actress for Paz Vega.
