"For the way Guatemala City creeps into the images giving us the tangible perception of suspended disturbance that moves between the shadows, corners and roofs of the capital. Ghosts of a metropolitan blues that slowly reveals itself as a spiritual ascension, in a free tail that opens the heart and gaze beyond the night and the asphalt."
— Jury of Italian Film Critics Union prize (Shorts IFF)
