The Basque language and culture readerships at Szeged and Budapest (Hungary) and Brno (Czech Republic), have paid special attention to the migratory processes that have shaped the Basque Country, and to the cultural and linguistic diversity created by this migration. “Sitio distinto” is a newly released documentary by Davide Cabaleiro with support from EiTB, which deals with the migration of the Galician people to the Basque Country. The documentary will be presented as part of the readership programmes in May.
The activity was organized jointly by the readers of the three readerships, Oxel Uribetxeberria and Asier Amezaga, to strengthen the relationship and collaborative work by the Basque Studies network of the Etxepare Institute. The screenings are included in the readerships programmes: on May 3rd in Brno, May 7th in Budapest, and May 8th in Szeged, as part of the "Cinema Paradiso" series.
The documentary will help to highlight the relationship between the Basque Country and Galicia, promoting synergies among students who work and carry out research in the area. The underlying idea is to promote Basque studies.
