DIRECTOR: Agustí Villaronga - SPAIN

Adapted from a novel by Emil Teixidor, Black Bread is set in the harsh years of post-war rural Catalonia. Andreu, a 10-year-old boy, comes across the bodies of a man and his son in the woods. Leaning over the dying boy, Andreu hears him whisper “Pitorliu”—the name of a monster supposedly haunting the village. When the local Fascist authorities want to pin the blame on Andreu’s father, a carefully watched Republican sympathizer, the boy sets out to find the real killers and brings to light long-hidden secrets. Black Bread is a moving plunge into the world of a child making his way through warring sources of truth and authority while dealing with all the expected adolescent urges and mysteries. (108 mins.)

Selected Filmography: In a Glass Cage (87), Moon Child (89), The Sea (00), Aro Tolbukhin in the Mind of a Killer (02).

Winner of the Audience Award, Montreal Film Festival.
