, directed by Eléonore Weber. A documentary crafted from footage taken from US and French military helicopters, Weber’s film was described by the jury as “a film that, through a restrained and tightly honed narration, invites a layered reflection on individual fragility, the relationships between North and South and the new currency of image.” A special mention was awarded to animated film Accidental Luxuriance of the Translucent Watery Rebus [+lire aussi :

, directed by Javier Fernández: “a ground-breaking bid to restore the memory of Spain’s colonial past and its impacts on Equatorial Guinea, which reverberate through history into our own time.” The winner of the Critics’ Award, selected by the Spanish journalists Mariona Borrull, Toni Junyent and Ángel Suanzes, was For the Time Being [+lire aussi :

by Spanish–German director Salka Tiziana, “for its bold portrait of an absence that gathers in the cracks of an oppressive familial environment.” Meanwhile, the Audience Award went to Dramarama, by Jonathan Wysocki (USA).

Finally, the Xurado Novo (Youth Jury), made up of University of Vigo students Alba Domínguez, Fernando Areal, Miguel Gómez, María Ramos and Ángeles Vidal, declared Denmark’s Illum Jacobi the most impressive director in the Official Section. Jacobi’s entry, The Trouble with Nature [+lire aussi :
