About missing young people in Mexico city. We really need that camera to keep social films, we are located in one of the most dangerous and poor areas in the city, and we have a project called nezafilms, to talk about these issues.


Thank you so much for this prize. For me it has been so hard to make films. But I am sure that if you use your art to help other people everything will be ok. I hope Francisco Alvabera can be found for his family, and this short film could become a record of his story. Like other people that has been missing in Mexico because of drug dealers and delinquency.
