Plot

'The Basque Ball: Skin Against Stone' is a 2003 documentary film written and directed by Spanish filmmaker Julio Médem. One of the main controversies of the documentary is that the two principal protagonists in the controversy, the then incumbent Partido Popular and ETA refused to take part in the interviews. The movie also utilizes footage from the Basque portions of the 1955 travelogue Around The World With Orson Welles, and continually intercuts between interviews and jai alai players. Medem, who is Basque, has been accused of being both pro-ETA and pro-"Spanish occupation" because of this film.
