La oveja negra 1960
The first work of his formative period, in 1960. Thanks to this work he passed the year at his first attempt, through a rather unusual channel. The short film La oveja negra tells the tale of a young boy. In preindustrial Madrid, the black sheep of a flock fascinates the boy, who tries to catch it. But he won’t be alone in the endeavour: the shepherd is right behind him, demanding that he leave the black sheep alone. The main topics are childhood and humour. In the absence of resources, the screenplay is remarkable.
Length: 30 minutes
