VOWELS won the MADATAC 05 Public Special Award / Madrid, Spain / December 22 2013
" With subtle historical references and with poetic and emotional manipulations, VOWELS is a disturbing work that deliberately puts us in an uncomfortable position: the helpless voyeurs of an abused young girl. The atmosphere is stressful, but not too much, to not broken the thin line between fiction and documentary. The idea is to subvert the fashion clichés by questioning and opposing them."
(VISUAL ARTBEAT MAGAZINE July 2013)
