The Jury’s Comment: Within short 15 minutes, an entire world of culture and characters opens is revealed. Understanding the world of the characters is fascinating, and the cinematic aspects make them more accurate. Siva the protagonist, is portrayed in an internal struggle for her female freedom and the camera succeeds to delicately, intelligently and aesthetically portray the chariots of the internal conflict when drawing the characters around her. The dialogues are well constructed and the result is a short and exciting film that manages to express a lot of power even between the lines.

Written & Directed By: Donna Hawa (The Jerusalem Sam Spiegel Film And Television School).
