Caballo Negro is an invasion: a journey from the earth to the outer space or from the outer space to the earth. It is a pagan ritual of three telluric goddesses or the enchantment of the three weird witches. It is a homage to industrialization and to ballet. It is animal, human, alien and terrestrial. It is a soviet movie in green and white or a Catalan film in Ukrainian. Caballo Negro is a video based on the homonymous song by Spanish punk band Tu Madre. It was shot in Hostalric on July 2013 and it was directed by Tuixén Benet, photographed by Pau Castejón and produced by Oriol Caba. It is intended as a music video for a vanished band, but it is too pop to be a video dance. The video’s starting point is the ending of the director’s graduation choreography project: Projecte Final. Caballo Negro is a simple choreography of three girls pretending to be horses at a midsummer night in the middle of the woods.

Caballo Negro is a cover by Tu Madre of the original mambo song by cuban musician Dámaso Pérez Prado. The song was released in the album Valentina.
