With Manuel Martinez, Marieta Orozco

Stigmata is a hauntingly beautiful and lyrical tale based on the Italian cult comic book by Lorenzo Mattotti and Claudio Piersanti. Multiawarded Adán Aliaga’s (My Grandmother’s House) debut feature is a thoughtful journey into the intertwining realms of faith and imagination. Told by a hulking, gentle giant of a man, Stigmata follows Bruno as he wakes up one morning bleeding from mysterious wounds on his hands. He questions the wounds from a purely physical perspective, but others see them as a divine sign. Hounded, Bruno flees the city and wanders through the countryside until he finds a traveling fair and falls in love. Ultimately, Bruno’s journey is one of universal ideas, which lead us to our own, larger-than-life questions about love, expectation, and redemption.

Press

“A richly suggestive, chilly fable about a lonely, gentle giant struggling to deal with the consequences of blood literally pouring from his hands, Adan Aliaga’s audacious, haunting debut Stigmata reps a distinctive calling card.” – Jonathan Holland, VARIETY

“A daring work with references to Luis Bunuel and Federico Fellini…a film as refreshing as it is interesting.” – Jordi Minguell, EL PAÍS
