SINOPSIS

On 5 March 1937 the Battle of Matxitxako Cape took place, a naval confrontation between four bous, small cod-fishing boats, poorly armed, that fought tooth and nail to defend the Galdames merchant ship as it made its way to Bilbao carrying Republican refugees when it was attacked by the Canarias, the nationalists' flagship. Matxitxako tells the tale of that naval battle 85 years after it happened, taking a closer look at the Basque Auxiliary Navy (created by the Basque Government to strengthen defence in the Bay of Biscay) and at the memory of those who participated in that episode of the Civil War, seamen who fought to defend their values, lands and families.
