El camino

The Path

The award goes to the film El Camino by Ishtar Yasin for the universal nature of the denunciation of the scourge called sexual child abuse and the silence that surrounds it, by showing the courage and the determination of a twelve year old girl and her mute brother. With the sophistication  of the subjective image reflecting the children’s look at the enigmatic adult world, the director tells a true tale without pathos or vain pedagogy, the poetic transposition of which is undertaken with purely cinematic means.
