Uruguayan Film Awarded in Havana
The Uruguayan film El baño del Papa (The Popes Toilet) won the Glauber Rocha 2007 award issued by Prensa Latina news agency at the Havana Film Festival. The jury also gave special mention to Mexican director Carlos Reygadas for Luz Silenciosa (Silent Light).

The first film by co-directors Cesar Charlone and Enrique Fernandez is set in the city of Melo, near the Brazilian border. Without the usual stereotypes related to poverty, the film deals with the struggle for survival common to almost all of Latin America.

The jury, which unanimously selected the film, praised its excellent acting, screenplay and photography.
