Basque Ball R2 Ws (Uk Import) - Medem, Julio
Releasedatum: 29 maart 2005
This fascinating and thought-provoking documentary from director Julio Medem explores the unique and long-held traditions of the mythical land of the Basques, and details the region's intricate and painful political reality. Featuring a mixture of archive footage and film extracts (including Orson Welles' Around The World travelogue piece) as well as the remarkably varied range of participants - from poets and musicians to terrorists and the many people whose lives have been indelibly marked by violence - this remarkable film offers a fascinating insight into a universal subject. Mature, complex, and startling brave, Basque Ball was the highest grossing Spanish documentary of all time. Its intelligent juxtapositions help to underline the dangers of allowing a situation to reach political deadlock, while its balanced and informed treatment ensures that the film will stand as one of the most absorbing, and controversial, of all modern documentaries.

DVD Extra's:
Julio Medem interview. Extensive additional footage. Original theatrical trailer. 4 page booklet with Robert Stone film notes.
