BEST PERFORMANCE IN A SHORT FILM IN 2020

Winner - Hector Enrique Rodriguez in La Ráfaga (Puerto Rico)

Weeks after Hurricane María devastated Puerto Rico, a lonely middle-aged man finds himself obsessing with his squatter neighbour, a young tormented athlete who insistently pursues his attention. La Ráfaga (The Gust) deals with fragility issues of living in a forgotten paradise, in the world's oldest colony, still half-torn, half-supported, with half-citizens, half-gods and half-demons. Website | Instagram
