Cannes 2022 – “La Jauria”, directed by Colombian Andrés Ramirez Pulido, won the Grand Prize of the Semaine de la Critique section


“La Jauria” paints the daily routine of young criminals and criminals whom an educator, Alvaro, tries to give a chance through a group therapy in an abandoned house in the center of the rainforest.

Andrès Ramirez Pulido, 32, has already had two short films selected and awarded at several international festivals.
