RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Two Mexican films competed this Friday in the Un Certain Regard section of the Cannes Film Festival, the second most important of the event, and both - "Noche de Fuego" (Prayers for the Stolen) and "La Civil" (The Civilian) - were rewarded with a prize.
These two feature films also had a common background: the collateral damage of violence in Mexico; the first from the point of view of three girls and the second focused on the desperate struggle of a mother to recover her daughter, kidnapped by a cartel.
