borderCrossing

2011, 47 mins.
In this innovative 47 minute film set in the Basque country, award-winning filmmaker Jill Daniels creates an evocative story of her own past through the wanderings of a young woman on both sides of the French/Spanish border while an unnamed man drives through the rain at night. Maria and Aitziber, two generations of Basque women, talk movingly to Daniels about the Spanish Civil War, Basque prisoners and the continuing violence in the Basque country.
