XII-2007 GOR DISKAK
After recording their 5th album ‘Jaio.Musika.Hil’, Berri Txarrak started a long tour playing almost 200 gigs all over the wolrd: Nicaragua, Mexico, USA, Japan, Taiwan, Ireland, Germany, Switzerland, England… The band members brought a small handycam with them. Director Ibon A. Totorika edited the footage and the band released this 70 min black & white documentary in late 2007.
By watching this film, you can witness the life of a hardworking rock band on the road, see the special recording of the album (not at any studio, but at a cottage in Eraso –Basque Country-) and it’s mixing in Kansas (USA)… It features interviews with band members, plus many more as Marino Goñi (GOR RECORDS), Karlos Osinaga (Lisabö), Tim McIlrath (Rise Against), Ryan Pope (The Get Up Kids), Ed Rose (Black Lodge Studios)… This documentary was selected at several film festivals as Portobello Film Festival (UK) or Zinemastea (Vitoria-Gasteiz, Basque Country).
Along with this documentary, the DVD includes a special live show by Berri Txarrak at the old gaztetxe (squat) in Gernika (Basque Country). The band decided to play on the floor (no stage at all), sorrounded by just 300 fans.
