The exhibition Euskadi Fantastikoa 19: Sorgin seinalea / La marca de la bruja (Gregorio Muro Harriet & Daniel Redondo), from the program of the 34th Horror and Fantasy Film Festival, will be open between October 27th and November 18th at the Central Library (Alderdi Eder).

Year of our Lord, 1611. Lapurdi, French Basque Country. Elvira de Goitie, wife, and mother of a small child, is accused of witchcraft and brought before Pierre de Rosteguy, Lord of Lancre, a despot who controls the region, perpetrating all manner of cruel abuses against the local population. And so begins the story and struggle for freedom of this female character amid a world entirely dominated by men.
