The first definitive film treatment of the Basque-Spanish conflict, EUSKADI looks at the tumultuous history of a long running struggle which is far from its resolution.

Archival footage and interviews with some of the main protagonists in the fighting depict such events as the 1937 bombing of Guernica, the 1973 killing of the Spanish Prime Minister by Basque nationalists of ETA (Euskadi ta Askatasuna - the Basque Country and Her Liberty), and the democratic transition of Spain since the death of Franco.

At the center of the film is a rare, inside look at ETA, the clandestine guerrilla army that has led the violent fight for Basque independence.

"An honest film which, while not hiding its sympathiesfor the Basque cause, is not touched by the excesses."—Le Monde (Paris)

"Serious, intelligent, and effective."—Liberation(Paris)
