HBO Europe’s PATRIA begins its eight-episode season SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 27 across the U.S., HBO Europe and HBO Latin America territories. The first two episodes will be available to stream on HBO Max starting Sunday, September 27 and will then air that following Wednesday on HBO Latino.
PATRIA tells a story – over three decades – of the Spanish Basque Country threatened by the separatist terrorism of ETA, through the eyes of two families divided by the violent conflict. On the day that ETA announces a ceasefire, Bittori visits the cemetery where her husband Txato, who was murdered by the terrorists, is buried. Will forgiveness be possible in a community shattered by political fanaticism?
The series has been created and written by Aitor Gabilondo, based on the bestselling novel Patria by Fernando Aramburu and is directed by Felix Viscarret and Óscar Pedraza.
Screendaily praises PATIRA “a deeply moving experience,” Cineuropa hailed it as an “extraordinary HBO series” while Javier Zurro of El Español calls it “the most important series of the year” and “a marvel which will move everyone and give us a lot to talk about.”
New episodes will roll out weekly on those respective days.
