At the opening night of the Holebifilmfestival the audience has chosen the 'Winner of Holebikort 2019':
The professional jury praised the art of Jorge Yúdice to bring a positive story about social media while they are just under fire because of social alienation and public deception. In a simple setting, a short period of time and with strong acting performances, Jorge shows how a mother and her son reconcile through a YouTube channel after years of silence. On this public and anonymous channel a very intimate connection is made between a mother and her child that deeply touches us all.
Jorge Yúdice was born in Valencia (Spain) and studied film at the ESCAC (Escola Superior de Cinema and Audiovisuals de Catalunya) in Terrassa (Spain). He is currently combining his work as a filmmaker with a job as an editor in an advertising agency. Jorge is a successful short film maker. Codrilo is his ninth short film.
