Dir. Nacho Reig / 92 min. / 2011 / Spain. Presentation by Dr. Juan Uriagereka, ViceProvost for Faculty Affairs
More than half a century ago, many Basques left Spain to look for a better life working as sheepherders in the American West. In Amerikanuak, Nacho Reig looks at the lives of some of the last remaining Basque sheepherders in the United States. The documentary takes place under the vast blue skies and bleak but beautiful winter landscape of the small town of Elko, Nevada
