According to Deadline, La Jauria won two awards at Critics' Week tonight, including the SACD Prize.

The plot revolves around Eli, a country boy who is imprisoned in a Colombian tropical forest experimental minors' centre for a crime he committed with his friend El Mono. Every day, the teenagers engage in physically demanding manual labour as well as intensive group therapy. El Mono arrives at the same centre one day, bringing with him a past that Eli is trying to forget.

As reported by Deadline, the film is "a very special film" with "a finely calibrated mix of recognisable social realism and dystopian weirdness." Charlotte Wells' Aftersun (review here), starring Paul Mescal, and Emmanuelle Nicot's Love According To Dalva (review here) for young star Zelda Samson both received nominations tonight.
