OCTUBRE – WINNER: BEST FEATURE FILM

Clemente, a moneylender of few words, is a new hope for Sofía, his single neighbor devoted to the October worship of Our Lord of the Miracles. They're brought together over a new-born baby, the fruit of Clemente's relationship with a prostitute who's nowhere to be found. While Clemente is looking for the child’s mother, Sofía cares for the baby and looks after the moneylender's house. With the arrival of these beings in his life, Clemente has the opportunity to reconsider his emotional relations with people. Octubre, the first feature film from Peruvian brothers Daniel and Diego Vega, is a deadpan dark comedy incorporating influences ranging from Jim Jarmush and Aki Kaurismaki to Robert Bresson, and winner of the Jury Prize at Cannes Film Festival-Un Certain Regard.
Director: Daniela and Diego Vega. 83 min. 2010. 35mm.

LEAP YEAR (AÑO BISIESTO) – WINNER: BEST DIRECTOR, FEATURE FILM
Michael Rowe’s debut feature film, winner of the Camera d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival, tells the story of Laura, a young journalist living an isolated life in a cramped Mexico City flat who is not lucky in love. The banality of her daily life stands in stark contrast to her nightly pursuit of sex and love. These short-lived affairs barely take the edge off her isolation, but then she meets the brooding, would-be actor Arturo. Their chemistry ignites feelings in Laura that leave her deeply troubled. The two embark on an increasingly dangerous sadomasochistic relationship in which pleasure, pain and love merge. Their physical relationship seems headed for a very dark place as her secret past resurfaces, pushing Arturo to the limit in this intense, powerful and at times deeply unsettling movie.
Director: Michael Rowe. 94 min. 2010. 35mm.
Mexico. In Spanish with English subtitles.

NOSTALGIA FOR THE LIGHT – WINNER: BEST DOCUMENTARY
Patricio Guzmán’s latest film is a meditation on memory, history and eternity. Chile’s remote Atacama Desert, 10,000 feet above sea level, provides stunningly clear views of the heavens. But it also holds secrets from the past—preserved corpses, from pre-Columbian mummies to recent explorers, miners and disappeared political prisoners. In this otherworldly place, earthly and celestial quests meld: archaeologists dig for ancient civilizations, women search for their dead and astronomers scan the skies for new galaxies.
Director: Patricio Guzmán. 90 min. 2010. 35mm.
France/Germany/Chile. In Spanish with English subtitles.

THE TINIEST PLACE (EL LUGAR MÁS PEQUEÑO) – WINNER: BEST FIRST FILM AND BEST DIRECTOR, DOCUMENTARY FILM
Hailed as “one of the most impressive debuts by a Mexican filmmaker” by Robert Koehler (Variety), Huezo’s remarkable film tells the story of Cinquera, a tiny place nestled in the mountains amidst the humid jungle that was ravaged by the bloody civil war that swept El Salvador between 1980 and 1992. The powerful and hypnotic documentary depicts a community that has learned to live with its sorrow, an annihilated town that re-emerges through the strength and deep love of its inhabitants for the land and people. With a lyrical eye, Huezo interweaves the simplicity of the town’s present life with tragic testimonies of the past. The Tiniest Place is ultimately a story of resilience, hope and the ability of the human being to reinvent himself after surviving a tragedy. 
Director: Tatiana Huezo. 104 min. 2010. 35mm.
Mexico. In Spanish with English subtitles.
