What do you do when the country you have lived in since childhood begins to actively persecute you? 

Aleteia is a teenager from El Salvador, whose scholarship at a US high school is at risk with the introduction of Trump’s forced deportation orders. But, as a young anarchist, she finds herself drawn to the radical activity which may also see her unjustly deported. Teamed up with Rosarito on a school project, the two spark a genuine friendship which leads Aleteia to explore her own sexuality.

La Layenda Negra was a hit at Sundance 2020 and is a careful and authentic film using beautiful black and white cinematography to show the turbulent forces that shape the lives of queer immigrant youth.

Australian Premiere

Special Mention, Festival MIX Milano di Cinema Gay Lesbico e Queer Culture 2020 Best Feature Film
Nominee, Sundance Film Festival 2020 NEXT Innovator Prize (Patricia Vidal Delgado)


"Patricia Vidal Delgado's sharply etched debut feature is a deft blend of the intimate and the political that recalls the fire-in-the-belly feistiness of early Spike Lee joints." — Screen International
