Gure Herria

A history for Basque amateur cinema

The Elías Querejeta Zine Eskola's research project Artisans of Cinema: research into Basque amateur cinema  has been recovering, since October 2018,  the history, names and material remains of this space which existed outside the commercial film industry. One of the most important milestones of the project is the recovery of the documentary series Gure Herria (Our Country), filmed by Fombellida between 1975 and 1985 with the aim of preserving the memory of a series of crafts and artisanal activities that were slowly fading from the collective Basque mindset.
