Mention to Best Feature Film - «Julia and the Fox» by Inés Barrionuevo

 

Julia and her daughter Emma are mourning the death of the girl’s father, and they move to the family’s large, old, vandalized house in the Sierras of Córdoba. This is the story of a difficult reconstruction in various senses: while the house requires a major remodeling job that is too expensive for them, the relationship between the mother and daughter faces a new abyss that is difficult to get over, as each one of them tries to get on with her own life. Neither feels young or is able to close the enormous wound that they live with; nor can either be the kind of companion the other needs to recover. The appearance of Gasper, an actor friend of Julia, will push both of them to face the needs they have, and the dysfunctional nature of their desires. In her second feature length film, Inés María Barrionuevo confirms her ability to construct and explore complex and relatable characters, on this occasion with excellent performances by Umbra Colombo and Victoria Castelo Arzubialde.
