film profile] (Hidden) by Michael Haneke (France/Austria/Germany/Italy).
"The intimate universe of a television presenter is filmed by an anonymous voyeur. Theses images which are sent to him, are worrisome and disturbing, because they resuscitate events from his childhood and resonate the present. In a pure style, the director evokes the complexity of one’s responsibility towards the past and History".
And a commendation to Delwende by S.Pierre Yameogo (Burkina Faso/France/Switzerland), "For the story of a courageous young woman who stands up to the patriarchal power in her African village, setting the values of solidarity and truth against certain oppressive customs and superstitions".
