Best Film
Nordeste by Juan Diego Solanas

The Jury’s motivation:
“A film that is remarkably mature in everything from theme, vision and execution. It has the firmcourage to ask difficult questions, without feeling the need to answer them for us, without everstraying from the path into cheap sentimentality or shock values”.
