THE BASQUE COUNTRY: A NATION WITHOUT BORDERS
Canadian filmmakers Amy Arnold and Étienne Trépanier tell the story of an encounter with a proud people who have succeeded in maintaining their language and secular traditions despite their minority status. Join us on a journey of discovery through the Basque Country, on a voyage to the heart of a land of contrast, where upscale resorts brush up against valleys scattered with villages, and semi-deserted plains. From the beaches of Biarritz to the gastronomic offerings of San Sebastian, the modern urbanism of Bilbao or the medieval villages of Navarre, dive into this captivating mosaic at the foot of the Pyrenees.
The film will be showcased in movie theatres in Québec, Canada, between Septembre 2016 and March 2017 through the organization Les Aventuriers Voyageurs (in French only). Come and meet with us at one of our live film presentation. Visit the Aventuriers Voyageurs for more information and screening schedule.
