« For its sensitivity in presenting the experiences and difficulties of a community in exile. The film shows the daily struggle of being trapped in a prison of repetition and routine in which there is little to no hope of escape. At the same time, the filmmaker manages to capture the fighting spirit of the people and an unexpected lightness in a difficult situation. A movie with extraordinarily strong characters, who impress with their self-determination and empowerment. »
The jury in Porto/Post/Doc
We are proud to announce that Hamada has won two of the most prestigious awards in Spain: Best Spanish Film and Best Spanish Director! Congratulations to Eloy Dominguez Serèn and the whole team and partners!
A special thanks go to Sidahmed Salek, the main cast, who was part of the screenings and discussions.
Some years back, we got a mail from a young Spanish director who had spent months in a forgotten refugee camp in the middle of the Sahara… 4 years later, Hamada is finally ready after an emotional and exciting journey! The World premiere will be this 15 November at IDFA – First Appearance Competition, followed by a Spanish premiere at Gijón International Film Festival (International Competition & Best Spanish Film Award) and a Portuguese premiere at Porto/Post/Doc (Official Competition).
Congratulations to director Eloy Dominguez Serén and all the team and partners! A special thanks to Zaara, Sidahmed and Taher, the amazing characters of the film!
