director: Lidia Terki

Lidia Terki's striking film shows a burgeoning talent clearly above the norm. La Mirador is the story of a teenage girl, Tara, who is inseparable from her older brother, until the proverbial summer that changes everything. Daniel takes up with moody, so-hip-it-hurts Marie, leaving Tara on the outside. Then Tara discovers that her brother has got into drugs in a big way. Telling her story sparingly and incisively, La Mirador benefits from powerful, low-key performances, especially by the expressive, sharp-featured Elsa Mroziewicz as the vulnerable but defiant heroine.
