Building on the celebration of St. Agatha's Eve — a deep-rooted Basque tradition in which people walk from house to house, accompanied by improvised verse-makers (bertsolaris) in a festive atmosphere, singing verses to the beating of long sticks, bertsolari Maialen Lujanbio offers a stark denunciation of gender violence. In verse after verse, she condemns the different manifestations of sexist violence and our inability to combat it.

◎ Screening with Panic Attack!, Munitionsettes, Iris 2.0, Gaining Altitude, Tucuman, The Black Land, In Other Words, Shuma, Icky, Love-In-Idleness, Chromosome Sweetheart



The film is a collectively created work directed by twenty young Basque artists. It combines works made with a great variety of techniques. The music and the rhythm of songs create a highly suggestive formal and narrative unity, which brings new force and depth to the verses.
