BLACK BREAD screened at the 32nd Cambridge Film Festival as part of CAMERA CATALONIA


Beta Cinema Spain’s submission for the Best Foreign Language Oscar is the first film in the Catalan language to win the Goya for Best Film as well as in eight other categories.


It is set during the aftermath of the civil war, and against the backdrop of the beautiful Catalan countryside. Beneath this beauty lies the debris of nationwide conflict. A young boy, Andreu, finds the corpses of a man and his son in the forest. When the authorities want to pin the blame on his father, the boy decides to try and help him, setting out to discover who killed them.


From a shocking opening, Villaronga follows his themes of childhood, war, horror and guilt in a powerful film.
