The winning film of the festival was a local production by Carlos Sanchez-Libre and Josep Badell, ”From the Streets to the Fields”, 80 minutes long, shot at the World Cup of football in South Africa 2010, a film with many layers, a focus on social conditions in the post-apartheid country, personalised by three kids who got to meet their idols, including a poor, black boy, who meets Barca's Iniesta before the player becomes the hero of the tournament scoring the decisive goal for Spain. Yes, in the spirit of Mandela, and simple in construction the film is, but it catches you emotionally, and I dare say that the kids show playing quality, when they are in touch with the stars, Luis Suarez from Uruguay is another one. Parallel to the World Cup games, the kids have their own matches which are fascinating to watch clips from. Joy and playfulness.
Another prize-winner, in the category short film, was American ”Aquadettes” by Zackary Canepari and Drea Cooper, 10 mins. long, with a wonderful, strong old woman as protagonist. She suffers from MS but has decided not to give up or rather give in to what the normal medical industry offers. She swims with other women, synchronized swimming, and she takes marihuana.
The jury decided to give the Special Jury Prize to ”Hannah” by Sergio Cruz, 5 mins. long, wordless, with a mongol young woman expressing herself through swimming and skiing. The film was awarded for its lyrical tone and fine camerawork.
