OFFICIAL SELECTION AWARDS

GOLDEN SHELL FOR BEST FILM

Pelo malo (Bad Hair)
Mariana Rondón (Venezuela-Peru-Germany)

The third film from the filmmaker and plastic artist Mariana Rondón stars Junior, a 9 year-old with "bad hair". He wants to have it straightened for his yearbook picture, like a fashionable pop singer. This puts him at odds with his mother Marta. The more Junior tries to look sharp and make his mother love him, the more she rejects him, until he is cornered, face to face with a painful decision.

IRIZAR BASQUE FILM AWARD

Asier ETA biok / Asier Y yo (Asier AND I)
Amaia Merino, Aitor Merino

World premiere
"I grew up with Asier in the streets of the Basque Country. Then I moved to Madrid. In 2002, Asier joined ETA. How could I make my friends in Madrid understand what had pushed him to take a decision even I could hardly come to terms with? When Asier got out of prison, I grabbed a camera with the intention of making a film about him to try and answer that very question and, in the doing, why not, to bridge the gap between our two ways of thinking. But things didn't go quite as simply as planned." (Aitor Merino)

François Ozon (FRANCE)

François Ozon, winner of last year's Golden Shell with Dans la maison (In the House), competed at the last Festival de Cannes with this portrayal of a 17-year-old girl in four seasons and four songs.
