Post screening Q&A with director and musicians Niña Coyote eta Chico Tornado

Dir. Andrew Nethery, 2020, USA, 82 min

Eight years in the making, and spanning over four decades of musical and revolutionary history, this is a compelling sonic journey through the turbulent events that defined the sound of Basque punk rock.

Filmed in the Basque Country, Catalonia and Los Angeles, the documentary is built around the personal stories of Usua and Koldo, the fiery rock n’ roll duo known as Niña Coyote eta Chico Tornado whose rise from local venues to massive festivals is charted here.

With a soundtrack featuring the movement’s most creative and best known names, including Willis Drummond, Negu Gorriak, R.I.P, Anestesia, Koratu and Audience, the film also features firsthand accounts from stars including Fermin Muguruza of the scene’s key role in catalyzing a cultural revolution while fighting against censorship in the Basque country.

Event supported by the BFI, awarding funds from the National Lottery.
