Synopsis

Neri, a fisherman, splits his time between two women: his wife Juanita with whom he has a daughter and his lover Magdalena, mother of three additional children. Things are about to change for Neri as Juanita falls gravely ill and Magdalena prepares to take her place. Shot entirely in the beautiful beaches of Corralera in Oaxaca and featuring a cast of non-professional actors from the nearby communities, “Black Mexicans” explores the social mores of and the discrimination faced by Mexico’s unacknowledged black community.

Neri, un pescador, se reparte el tiempo entre dos mujeres: su esposa Juanita con quien tiene una hija y su amante Magdalena, madre de tres hijos adicionales. Todo cambia cuando Juanita cae gravemente enferma y Magdalena se prepara para tomar su lugar. Filmada en las hermosas playas de Corralera en Oaxaca y con un elenco de actores no profesionales de las comunidades cercanas, “La negrada” explora las costumbres sociales y la discriminación que enfrenta la totalmente ignorada comunidad negra de México.
