, by Spain’s Luis López Carrasco, its winner. The film takes as its basis events dating back to 1992 - riots and protests unfolding in Cartagena, in the south-east of Spain, a country which, at the time, was trying to pass itself off as civilised, modern and dynamic (ten years after Felipe González’s labour party victory) – narrated by way of discussions filmed in a cafe in the present day. The jury explained their decision as follows: "A great epic of the spoken word in a post-Franco and post-industrial-crisis Spain, where the same bar is filmed, evening and morning, as a Noah's Ark AND tower of Babel, the film is akin to a stained-glass window, shaking up temporalities, a dissonant, albeit magnificently cadenced choir, a patient, generous and formally admirable work." Unveiled in competition in Rotterdam, the documentary was produced by Spanish firm LaCima Producciones (who are also helming international sales) alongside Swiss group Alina Film.

, Elvis Sabin Ngaibino’s first feature film produced by Italy’s Daniele Incalcaterra (via his Argentine outfit) in collaboration with the Bangui Alliance Française and Ateliers Varan. The jury’s reasoning: "The filmmaker manages to move us with a forceful, simple film. His protagonists' deep humanity coupled with powerful and rigorous cinematographic work impressed us. Made in the Central African forest, the film tackles universal themes with finesse and complexity."

The Institut Français - Louis Marcorelles Award, handed to the best film in the French Selection, went to Chronicle of the Stolen Land [+lee también:

by Marie Dault (produced by Tell Me Films and Pays des Miroirs). The jury’s reasoning: "The splendid energy of the film and its protagonists plunges us into a Caracas neighbourhood with a story that has a rare force. The figure of a woman fighting adversity with generosity and dignity is truly magnificent. The film touches on complex and universal issues and opens the door to hope with its masterful narration."

A Special Mention, meanwhile, went to There Will Be No More Night [+lee también:

by Éléonore Weber. Produced by Perspective Films, the jury described it as "a disturbing documentary in which Blackness is both subject and material, night is a reversible space and war, above all, a length of time. An impressive plastic work, the film installs a dizziness and sows doubts about itself, like the reflection of stars on water."
