Best Short Documentray winner: THE CUT

THE CUT is an essential and emotionally shocking film. Able to stage the visceral falling in love between a mother and her creature, using an extraordinary actress and a minimal cinematic language. A little tragic poem, immersed in the whiteness of mother's milk, that reminds us that only emotions make us human.
