Spain 2021 – Director: Marc Parramon Bori, Amets Arzallus Antia – Original language: Basque, Spanish – Subtitles: English

A brawl in the small Basque town of Altsasu is interpreted as a terrorist attack and eight young people are brought to trial facing life sentences. “Hate, death and fear,” “they are evil,” “beasts.” The trial is exploited politically and by the media to stir up bad feelings towards left-wing groups. An explosive film about a judicial scandal. Samay Claro
