BLACK IS BELTZA

directed by FERMÍN MUGURUZA

SYNOPSIS: 

In 1965, the Pamplona giants were invited to parade around the streets of New York City. Victims of the racism of the time, the black giants were censored. Black is Beltza tells the story of Manex, one of the bearers.

Manex turns his anger into revolution, abandons his partners from Pamplona, and they end up moving to Cuba, where he takes on a very dangerous mission that will take him traveling around the world.

Black is Beltza is a different roadmovie, a story about struggle and oppression, justice and change.
