Our last days in Basque country are comprised of a day trip to San Sebastián, a jaunt to the beautiful villages a stone’s throw from France, and one final gathering of the SWS: Pamplona Superstars for some vino tinto, homemade pinxos, and laughs. We will miss everything about this place (even the two strange and […]
It’s Sunday morning and those three kooky old timers with the red berets have just passed through the street below, waking everyone up with their drums and flutes. But we’ll stay in bed just a little bit longer, dreaming about last night’s incredible premiere of The Sound We See: A Pamplona City Symphony made by […]
Tonight’s the night!!!!!!!
A day of dogs and raindrops!

Trinh T. Minh-ha’s Remembering Vietnam was […]

So proud of Sound We See: Pamplona participants Marina Lameiro and Maddi Barber who both have films […]
The weekend editing frenzy has set in! The challenge: each filmmaker must cut their segment down to EXACTLY 60 SECONDS. We’re all hopped up on pastries and cheese and coffee and we’re not stopping ’til this film is DONE!!!!!!!!
Saturdays, sunshine, flea markets, powerful women, street art (political and otherwise), soccer, bella vistas, and mini marching bands!
