As a film, 'La Mancha Negra' is a tragedy with echoes of Lorca, of Shakespeare not to mention Hitchcock's touch of suspense and the dry treatment of Tarantino's violence", Enrique Garcia, Director

SYNOPSIS

Early 70’s in a small, secluded Andalusian village. Deep tensions are reignited in the wake of the death of the elderly matriarch, Maria Cisneros, and the arrival of her long-gone son. As the struggling sisters prepare the funeral, a black stain involving the local priest re-surfaces. Facing the threat of destitution, exile, and rejection by neighbors, family power dynamics implode to a tragic end.

Cast: Pablo Puyol, Virginia de Morata, Natalia Roig, Juanma Lara, Cuca Escribano. Alfonsa Rosso, Miguel Guardiola, Joaquín Nunez
