We read it on the Etxepare Basque Institute's website. The film Waayu: the Maracaibo girl "has all the elements that a thriller should: an impossible love, shootings, intrigue ... but in addition to these components, the film The Girl of Maracaibo has an added value: the diversity of languages . the film is recorded in Euskera, Spanish and wayuunaiki (the language of the waayu tribe).
