Lasa eta Zabala: Old Conflicts and New Basque Cinema

An introduction to the film, to the role of conflict in Basque films, and to how they relate to new contexts in Spanish cinema.

The Lasa Zabala case was one of the most notorious episodes in the dirty war between Basque separatists and the Spanish government that spanned more than half a century. As an introduction to the docudrama Lasa eta Zabala, Ann Davies surveys how film has attempted to come to terms with this complex conflict.
