The Spanish selection for the 2011 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, Pa Negre is set in the war-ravaged Catalan countryside of the early 1940s.
Eleven-year-old Andreu stumbles upon a crushed wagon in the underbrush at the foot of a high cliff and witnesses the dying moments of the man and boy inside. When police suspect Andreu’s father of foul play he goes into hiding; Andreu is sent to live with relatives. There, the frightened boy creates a fantasy life, but is forced to confront a world of adult deception, festering hatreds and the war’s monstrous consequences.
Adored by audiences and critics alike, Pa Negre won numerous prizes, including 9 Goya Awards and 13 Gaudí Awards.
