EUGENIO, WHITE OR BLACK

Spain / 76’ / HD

He used to dress in black. He was always wearing dark glasses. He had a drink in one hand and a cigarette in the other. He was the most popular comedian in Spain for his unique jokes and his special attitude. But his success was just an illusion.
The death of the love of his life, Conchita Alcaide, touched him forever. He was obsessed, sad and felt guilty about it. He was depressed, and he never recovered from his disease. His life was bright light on stage but darkness in reality.
Now, fifteen years after his death, we will know for real who Eugenio was.
