La Virgen Negra stillLa Virgen Negra (The Black Virgin)
Directed by Ignacio Castillo Cottin
Venezuela, 2008
Saturday, April 10, 8pm


The oppressive air over a small fishing village begins to lift after a neglected wife convinces a local witch to secretly replace the patron of their church with the Black Witch. Though the founder of the village approves the change, it’s performed without the knowledge of the general population. Once the ritual has been completed, tensions around the village begin to dissipate and love fills the air. But just as the woman who invoked change prepares to spread the secret of true happiness, a group of young children accidentally destroy the image of the Black Virgin, and the town experiences a disturbing shift in mood.
