This social drama follows the journey of teenage girls placed in a foster home, a family environment, but marked by a retrograde institution. Present in Namur for the ceremony, the director explained that he had to change the foster home for the shooting at the last moment, and therefore also had to find new heroines since many of them are real young girls he met there. He underlined the harshness of a system against which he wanted to react by making this film, which also received the Agnès prize, the award for egalitarian imagination, which rewards a filmmaker whose work bears witness to an egalitarian, original and innovative artistic approach.
The Special Jury Prize went to Întregalde [+leggi anche:
