Donostia.- The jury that grants the Amnesty International Prize in the 16th edition of the Donostia-San Sebastián Film and Human Rights Festival has awarded the award to the feature film “Beauty and the Dogs” (Aala Kaf Ifrit, 2017), by the director Tunisian Kaouther Ben Hania. It is a co-production of Tunisia, France, Sweden, Norway, Lebanon, Qatar and Switzerland that has been distinguished “for the precision with which it tackles the harassment and the process of blame suffered by a woman who wants to report a rape”.
Based on a real event, the film carefully unfolds a tense and anguished story about the physical and psychological abuses to which Mariam, the protagonist, is subjected. The film narrates the process by which it happens throughout a night when, after being violated, it tries to denounce it. From the incomprehension and the blame of the people to whom it goes, to the threats and vexations of the police so that it does not denounce.
In “Beauty and the dogs” (The beauty and dogs) shows the rigidity of institutions that have not changed after the Tunisian spring, impunity and corporatism of the security forces, and the risks assumed by those who defend the victim. At a time when women’s demands are reaching a new dimension, this film adds another element of reflection in defense of women’s rights.
The festival, which began last Friday, closes this afternoon in a ceremony that will take place from 8 pm at the Victoria Eugenia Theater, in the course of which the International Amnesty Prize will be presented, symbolized by a sculpture, “Etorriak”, by the Basque artist Koldobika Jauregi. On this occasion, the award will be given by Rocío Lardinois – member of the jury of this edition and of Amnesty International on issues of refuge and fundamental freedoms in Europe – and Izaskun Fernández – member of the Amnesty International Donostia group.
Throughout the festival, activists of Amnesty International have collected a large number of signatures to join the campaigns “Russia: Justice for the murdered activist Natalia Estermirova”, “Taner and the 10 of Istanbul. Human rights defenders in Turkey “and” Colombia, human rights defenders in danger “among the public attending the sessions at the Victoria Eugenia Theater, as well as signatures supporting other individual cases in countries such as Syria, Egypt, Bahrain, Iran, South Africa or Turkey.Searching Term : Beauty and the Dogs Full Watch Beauty and the Dogs Movie Streaming Online 2017, Watch Beauty and the Dogs Movie Streaming HD 1080p, Free Beauty and the Dogs Movie Streaming Online, Download Beauty and the Dogs Full Movie Streaming Online in HD-720p Video Quality , Where to Download Beauty and the Dogs Full Movie ?, Beauty and the Dogs Movie Include All Subtitles 2017.
