CHEZ LES BASQUES
Basker: A Film on the North of Spain


Country: Sweden
Year: 1963
Duration: 24'
Direction: Dan Grenholm, Lennart Olson

Filmed in the winter of 1963, Basker is an ethnographic documentary film in which scenes of the Basque culture and landscape is brought to the Swedish audience with masterly cinematographic skill. The document begins in Navarra with the Ituren and Zubieta carnival and observes the procession of its joaldunak (cowbell carriers). The folklore is followed by sport with a pelota game in Bergara and the rural sports of stone dragging with oxen and ram fighting, both filmed in Aia. The film also captures magical moments, such as an aurreskus (dance) competition in Abadiño, the beautiful sound of the txalaparta (wooden percussion instrument) at the Bilandegi farmhouse in Martutene and the priceless bickering between the bertsolaris (verse singers), Uztapide and Basarri. In short, it is an open window to Sweden in the 1960s and a treasure for our audience today.
