El lugar más pequeno (The Tiniest Place) by Tatiana Huezo (Mexiko)
The film starts out slowly and, using elegant cinematic techniques, builds its dramatic trajectory in small increments. The filmmaker juxtaposes first-person narratives to the faces of ordinary people who have experienced the traumas of war and death – having been driven from their village in El Salvador during the course of a brutal civil war. This is a deeply compassionate vision of life, loss and rebirth that has universal appeal.
