Click here to view a Spanish language trailer for a film on  the Siege of Santo Domingo of 1655. It was a major battle fought between April 23 to April 30, 1655 at the Spanish Colony of Santo Domingo (Hispaniola). A force of 2400 Spanish troops led by Governor Don Bernardino Meneses and Bracamonte, Count of Peñalba, defeated a force of 13,120 troops and 34 ships of the English Commonwealth Navy led by Admiral Sir William Penn [1].

So, the question is … does anyone know the title of the film in question?

[1] Admiral Penn was the Sea General who, with English land forces, went on to capture the island of Jamaica from the Spanish, thus establishing that island as the centre of English slave trading and sugar production.
