“The Interactions Jury Award for the best short film goes to L de Libertad by
Javier Hernández and Marc Guanyabens. The main character of the movie goes
beyond the limits set by his disability, in order to find his independence.
Greater autonomy leads people to play an active role in the society.
The main character wants to be an example for those in need,
giving them a chance for the future, also thanks to the community,
not with a pitiful approach but with its concrete and valuable support”.
