-Juan Zapater, DIARIO DE NOTICIAS

-Mikel G. Gurpegui, EL DIARUI VASCO
2014 New Release Bertsolari offers a rare look at Bertsolaritza, an
ancestral and completely improvised form of Basque poetry. Anachronistic?
Not at all. The bertsolari, with their spontaneous creation and wordplay,
could be an inspiration for rappers, spoken word artists and other
improvisers around the world. A living ethnographic documentary,
Bertsolari would make a vital contribution to courses in Basque Studies,
Iberian Studies, Anthropology, Linguistics, Cultural Studies, Poetry and
BERTSOLARI - NOW AVAILABLE WITH PUBLIC PERFORMANCE RIGHTS
A film by Asier Altuna
Spain / 2011 / 52 min / Spanish and Basque with English subtitles
Though Bertsolaritza is a surprising art of austere aesthetics in these
days of spectacularity and special effects, this ancient oral tradition
has nonetheless evolved and adapted to the times, connecting with the
youngest generations. At the grand finale performance of the last
championship an audience of 14,000 people gathered to watch eight
bertsolaris vie live against each other. In this remarkable documentary,
the filmmaker takes us on a voyage through improvised verse, silence and
art in the raw.
