Monday’s screening of Handia, was followed by another on Tuesday, where the director returned to talk to spectators, and to answer their questions.
The film shot in the Basque language is receiving a very warm reception every place that it has been shown in the film festival circuit, as well as at Basque clubs that are also showing it.
