BAHIA BLANCA

Jess Franco, Spain, 1984, Severin Films, Cult

“Filled with colorful characters, melancholy nautical imagery and plots worthy of a soap opera, BAHIA BLANCA is compulsively watchable, showing off Franco's uncanny knack for landscape and light as extensions of his characters' turmoil.” -- Mondo Digital

During his mid-‘80s professional upheaval, Jess Franco shocked the industry by self-financing one of the most idiosyncratic films of his entire career (and that’s saying something!)

When a battered corpse washes ashore in a Spanish fishing village, the local community of prostitutes, mobsters and lawmen begin to seethe with lust, vengeance and murder. Franco muse Lina Romay stars in this poetic thriller Franco scholars have compared to both JOHNNY GUITAR and KILL BILL, now scanned in 4k from the original negative!
