Jury statement: "Through the intimate story of one Mexican family's ordeal, 'Heli' powerfully humanizes the plight of an entire country caught in the middle of a devastating drug war that has claimed by some estimates 100,000 lives in the past few years. 'Heli' is an unforgettable portrait of the struggle for dignity in the face of a human catastrophe. Not only does the film touch us through it's simple, restrainted depiction of this tragic subject matter, but 'Amit Escalante' demonstrates the writing and directing sureness of a master filmmaker."

Motivation of the jury: "The film's photography lifts the story at the same time undermining both the landscape and the events taking place guiding the viewer along previously unexplored paths. The camera forces us to visit places we have never been, and which we maybe wish we had been spared. However, provocative the images are they achieve an unexpected beauty, and come together to create a shattering and comprehensive film."
