|CHEZ LES BASQUES|
Direction: Dan Grenholm, Lennart Olson
Inseparable from Basker, Bonde i Baskerland rounds off the unique joint portrait of the Basque Country by Grenholm and Olson. Focusing on rural life, the film brings out the more ethnographic side and shows (in addition to beautiful images of the landscape and some towns in the north of Navarra, such as Arantza) rural life in scenes filmed in Ataun (ploughing with laias (two-pronged foot ploughs), making talos (corn tortillas), all under the guidance and watchful eye of Father Barandiaran) and at the Itxasmendi farmhouse in Bergara (daily life is surprised with astonishing naturalness). The document concludes with golden images for Basquologists: the great musician, Maurizia Aldeiturriaga on the pandereta (tambourine), alongside her husband, Vancio Bernaola, playing a jota in Spanish in the kitchen of their farmhouse in Elixabiti (Artea-Bizkaia).
