SIGNIS Prize at the Milan Film Festival

Monday 11 April 2016, by SIGNIS

Milan, April, 11th, 2016 (SIGNIS). At the 26th Festival del Cinema Africano, d’Asia e America Latina in Milan, that took place from April 4th-10th, the SIGNIS Jury awarded the film Mina Walking, by Yosef Baraki (Afghanistan/Canada).

“The young and talented protagonist is followed in real-time by the filmmaker’s eye, in the style of a documentary, in a film with a big emotional impact. In a world filled with violent men and criminals, Mina manages to survive with the tenacity of her 12 years and the energy of those willing to survive in a society in complete disarray, like the one of today in Afghanistan.”

The Jury members were Vanessa Lanari, Gaetano Liguori and Marianna Ninni.
