Pudor takes top prize at Lecce European Film festival
The Spanish film "Pudor" (Modesty) directed by David and Tristan Ulloa (on a script by the latter) walked away with the top prize at the European Film festival in Lecce, Italy. According to the jury, the film won the Golden Olive for “knowing how to command everyday surrealism with original solutions, applied to a subject that is today being discussed again and is in progressive transformation and dissolution – the family”.
The film bills itself as being "about intimacy... desires, obsessions, secrets and fears that we keep hidden, even from those we love most". The producer's site (in Spanish) can be seen here.
The best screenplay award went to Andrei Zvjagingev’s "The Banishment".
