Prize of the Ecumenical Jury, Fribourg 2022

The film tells the story of Cielo - played outstandingly by Arcelia Ramírez - a mother who falls into the terrible violence of the Mexican cartels after her daughter is kidnapped. We are impressed by the courage of this woman and her phenomenal energy and determination. Around this dramatic event, she develops a powerful inner strength to persevere to the end in her search for the truth. The film is a significant universal plea for all those mothers who relentlessly keep their hope alive and engage in the fight for justice. (Photo: © Menuetto film)
