Premiação – apreciações do júri

SPECIAL MENTION

The jury was sensible to the hability with wich the director builds its narrative, from the way of exploring the scenic space until the acting of Dona Sônia and her neighbor. The social issue of violence is updated in an original way, through a very particular writing style.

BEST SHORT FILM

The film convinces by a simple but effective approach with an unique handwritting and an original voice. The jury appreciates the unique combination of high emotions and high artificiality at the same time. The tension that results from this creates suspense and manages to draw the audience’s attention.

BEST FEATURE FILM

The jury recognizes the film’s effort to deal with important issues of his time and place, Latin America. Through the many encounters that happen in the film’s errant road, it’s possible to reflect on the paths still so open in this developing continent.

** WANDERERS **
(ESTRADEIROS)
by Renata Pinheiro and Sergio Oliveira

BEST DIRECTION AWARD

The jury appreciated the filmic economy built by the director through his choices, both of form and content. The option of showing scenes repeatedly as well as the play’s background reveal the construction of a theatre character through cinema, and makes us think of what acting is, the possibilities and limits of representation.
