The second edition of the TeleSur prize, awarded Wednesday at the Havana Film Festival, went to US filmmaker Estela Bravo for the 75-minute documentary Who am I: The Found Children of Argentina.

The TeleSur prize was created to promote moviemakers with a personal social commitment. This years award went to Bravo "for capturing the significance of the struggle embarked upon by the Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo and the extraordinary handling of audiovisual techniques."

In receiving the award, Bravo said Who Am I has been the hardest effort of her entire career. She praised the work of TeleSur for showing "what is happening" in the different countries of the continent. She also made a call to young people to film the new realities of Latin America.

Other documentaries by Estela Bravo include Fidel (2001), The Cuban Excludables (1997) and Miami-Havana (1994).
