SCW films wins prize in Amsterdam

July 5, 2010

La buena nueva (2008), a Spanish Civil War film directed by Helena Taberna and starring Bárbara Goenaga, received the Special Jury Prize for Acting at the Amsterdam Film Festival:

A young priest arrives in his first assignment to a small parish serving a working-class village in the first days of the Spanish Civil War. Based on a real story, the film portrays how he commits himself to stand by his parishioners and how he denounces from the pulpit and before the Catholic Hierarchy the atrocities being committed, to the extent that he will risk his own life in the name of Christ.
