“La larga noche de Francisco Sanctis” Won the International Competition

23 de April de 2016

The Argentine movie, Andrea Testa and Francisco Márquez’s debut film, also won Best Actor for the performance of Diego Velazquez.

The Argentine film La larga noche de Francisco Sanctis, by Andrea Testa and Francisco Márquez, won Best Film in the International Official Competition of the 18th BAFICI. This debut film is based on the novel of the same name by Humberto Costantini, which tells the story of an ordinary man who stayed away from ideological dilemmas faced during the military dictatorship in Argentina 1976 and 1983. The film drifts away from Argentine cinema’s usual treatment of this topic—point of view of the victims or perpetrators—and instead focuses on the psychological denial that many people were caught in while people disappeared.

Another Argentine film, La noche, by Edgardo Castro, won the Jury Special Prize. Best Director went to Egyptian filmmaker Tamer El Said for In the Last Days of the City; Best Actor went to Argentine Diego Velazquez for his performance in La larga noche de Francisco Sanctis; and Best Actress went to Peruvian Liliana Trujillo for her work in Rosa Chumbe. Also, Special Jury Mentions were awarded to the Peruvian film Rosa Chumbe, by Jonatan Relayze Chiang, and the French-Portuguese co-production John From, by João Nicolau.
