This chapter considers the relation of landscape to debate about the Basque situation in Julio Medem's La pelota vasca: la piel contra la piedra. It also analyses how terrorists fighting for Basque independence move across the Basque landscape by means of the rural road in Días contados and El viaje de Arián. Both of these films use the road as the place in which the central character identifies with the Basque Country. This chapter shows that the use of landscape, space and place offer distance, displacement, and denial.
