This documentary illustrates five points of view on creative processes by two basque poets, Juan Kruz Igerabide and Iñigo Astiz, two basque Illustrators, Maite Mutuberria and Elena Odriozola, and one publisher, Antxiñe Mendizabal from Elkar Taldea. It also focuses on the culture of poetry and its origins... the relationship between the image and the text in the illustrated poems, looking into the difficulty of writing in a minority language such as Basque and the risks of translating poetry nowadays. A rich documentary which gives a general image of poetry for children in the Basque Country, from oral tradition to poetry picture books of these days.
A project from Basque Books.
