More than half a century ago, many Basques left Spain to look for a better life working as sheepherders in
the American West. In Amerikanuak, Nacho Reig looks at the lives of some of the last remaining Basque
sheepherders in the United States. The documentary takes place under the vast blue skies and bleak but
beautiful winter landscape of the small town of Elko, Nevada.
