“For having been able to tell a distressing story with delicacy and lightness, also thanks to the expressive versatility of the performers, skillfully mixing the pseudo-dramas of everyday life with the most merciless tragedy.” – The jury
“For having made a film, an anthropology treatise and a prayer at the same time, intervening on the viewer’s perception with a sort of black and white shamanic elegy. There is flesh, spirit, death, dance: that’s all you need.” – The jury
“For having been able to tell through the off-screen and the unspoken, the incommunicability of the father-son relationship within the empty and superficial routine of a community that no longer knows how to live in the present of its emotions.” – The jury
“For having been able to create a direct empathic relationship with the young audience that manages to identify with the protagonist and with her extreme desire for freedom and escape.” – The young jury
“For having painted a disastrous land with disturbing atmospheres, animating the oppressors and oppressed who live there with great precision.” – The jury
