Prize of the Ecumenical Jury, Cannes 2017

Misako, a young woman who provides audio-description, renders films more accessible for blind people. It is through poetry that this masterpiece allows us to pay more attention, to watch and listen to the world around us. The film allows for new conversations and inspires a broadening of the mind to understand others better.
Hikari explores the responsibility, resilience, hope, and the possibility, even for those in the dark, to see the light. (Photo: © 2017 KINO FILMS - COMME DES CINEMAS - KUMIE)
