During FIPA, audiovisual students from Bayonne-Biarritz expressed their views:
"... a musical documentary full of encounters, pride in traditions, love and questioning, of wild and magnificent landscapes ... And above all, it is an encounter with voices presented by Elsa and Oihan Oliarj-Inès, and magnificent voices they are!
