THE BASQUE COUNTRY - A Nation Without Borders

THE BASQUE COUNTRY: A NATION WITHOUT BORDERS

This is the story of an encounter with a proud people who have succeeded in maintaining their language and secular traditions despite their minority status. Join Amy Arnold and Étienne Trépanier on a journey of discovery through the Basque country, on a voyage of more than 12 000 km 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.

ABOUT THE FILM

Our journey begins on the shores of the gulf of Gasgone where the Basque have been settled for millennia. After an overview of Biarritz and the Basque coast and the very popular French Basque Country, we seek to discover the characteristic small villages nestled between steep cliffs. These active fishing ports continue the tradition for which they are famous: fishing. Each of these areas has preserved their lively traditions, and we are witnesses to these colourful events.
