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), singing verses to the beating of long sticks—, bertsolari Maialen Lujanbio offers a denunciation of gender violence.
The short film is a collectively-created work directed by twenty young Basque artists, coordinated by Bego Vicario. The short film interprets a 'bertso' made by Andoni Egaña in homage to the disappeared persons in the Civil War. The octogenarian Euxebi has never known where the remains of her father lay, but she has kept alive her memory until his remains have been found.
