This Thursday saw the launch of the movie Murder at the university in The 1. Set in Salamanca, and a tribute to their university, in its EIGHTH anniversary, is directed by Iñaki Peñafiel and starring by Leonor Watling, Patrick Criado, and Daniel Grao.

Your story is set somewhere between the present and the Century Gold, and tells of the research of the historian Lara Cabanes (Leonor Watling) to clarify the murder, which occurred in strange circumstances, by Antonio Román, a professor and augustinian friar, teacher of a group of students, eager for knowledge, spearheaded by the novice Luis de León. Cabanes is immersed in a time in which the University of Salamanca was a place of fiery discussions, as well as intrigue among teachers and religious orders, especially the augustinians and the dominicans, which could lead to dispute in the courts of the Holy Inquisition.
