Aniss El Hamouri for Comme un frisson

The jury praised this "contemporary story where the relationship to violence is treated with intelligence and energy. All characters are embodied, complex. It is a very accurate portrait of what some young adults can experience today. The lively feature of Aniss El Hamouri effectively illustrates this drift from fragility to violence".

It will be again honored during the great evening of the Revelations of the ADAGP, organized at Centquatre - Paris, in January 2019.
