Black is Beltza

Part of the Edinburgh Spanish Film Festival Season


A high-profile 2D animated feature. Che, Otis Redding, Jimi Hendrix and Charles de Gaulle all appear in this voyage from Harlem, to Cuba, to Algeria, that offers up an unusual mix of music and adventure in the midst of the Cold War.
October 1965. Pamplona’s troupe of giant figures, a typical sight at the San Fermín festivities, is invited to parade along Fifth Avenue in New York. But not all of them will be allowed to appear - due to racial discrimination, the American authorities will ban the participation of the two black giants. A truly entertaining comic-book style animated delicacy.

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Fermín Muguruza.
