A film director wants to make a movie about a priest who loses his mind and imagines three different scenarios: he’s an Andalucian who has stolen several pounds of communion wafers, he’s an American with a Catholic TV show, he’s a priest who thinks he’s Jesus Christ and performs bizarre miracles. With black and white actors and color backgrounds, Sacramento is a parodic analysis of the relationship between religion and insanity.
A professor of political science for the last thirty years at the Autonomous University of Barcelona, he’s the author of essays, novels and stories. As a director, he’s made Queridísimos intelectuales (del placer y el dolor) (12), La cámara lúcida (13) and Sacramento.
