Set in the Basque region, this epic portrayal of feuding families begins with a single act of cowardice that shapes the lives of three generations and fuels an intense rivalry. Told in four related short stories, Vacas director Julio Medem continues the work of Armendariz in Tasio, rethinking how Basque landscapes shape the identity of the Basque psyche. Vacas turned out to be one of the most important films of the 1990s, ushering in a debate about the revival of Basque cinema.

The screening will be introduced by Miren Manias-Muñoz, Postdoctoral Fellow at Edinburgh University, who holds a PhD in Film Studies from the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU).
