Music has a way of bridging all language and cultural barriers. Music communicates where words often fail. Traveling across the globe, two Basque musicians – Igor and Harkaitz - use their musical talents to create a dialog between people and cultures. Their instrument, the Txalaparta, is a traditional Basque instrument that must be played by two people. The music that arises from this instrumental encounter doesn’t just belong to them. Instead, the sounds that emerge become their conversation with those whom they encounter on their journey.
As our musicians wander from the Sahara to Lapland, from India to Mongolia, they create a beautiful soundtrack that underscores the value of cultural exchanges through music and travel. In an ever-changing world, Nömadak Tx stands out as a project for people, who in the face of globalization, remained tied and committed to their traditional way of life.
Winner of over 10 Best Documentary awards and nominated as one of the top 20 documentaries of all time by the International Documentary Foundation , Nömadak Tx is pure, cinematic pleasure, beautifully shot in HD. The film shows us that even in the face of adversity, something wonderful often emerges.
Nominated for a 2010 Mexican Aerial Award for Best Documentary

This frightening documentary analyzes for the very first time this unknown and supernatural disease. Is it the spirits protesting how nature is being destroyed while they possess the minds of the natives? Is it a disease caused by the cultural clash of a rushed and late colonization? Or, are we just witnessing fraud and black magic?
What does it feel like to suddenly discover that your parents are not actually your parents, but part of a network of military criminals who murdered your mother and father?
