La pelota vasca. La piel contra la piedra

Basque Ball: The Skin against the Stone

Medem, who had already cast a sceptical eye on Basque obstinacy and the weight of tradition in his first film, Cows, made the surprising, many would say courageous, decision to turn his film-making skills to politics. The product of that move, a documentary, La Pelota Vasca: la Piel Contra la Piedra, is the most controversial thing to hit Spanish cinema for years. (Giles Tremlett )
