Yesterday, after the successful closure of the first and historic virtual edition of the Panama International Film Festival, the film winning the public award was unveiled.
The Invisible Life of Eurídice Gusmão, by the Brazilian Karim Aïnouz.
The Invisible Life of Eurídice Gusmão, by the Brazilian Karim Aïnouz, won the Mastercard Audience Award, earning US $ 5,000 in digital cards.
The film tells the story of two sisters in conservative Brazil in the 1950s, forced by their father to live apart, without ever losing hope of their reunion.

The award given by our ally Mastercard confirms its commitment to supporting the film industry so that it can continue to grow and develop its artistic works: “Films give us the opportunity to tell stories and connect with people. In a context such as the one we live in today, in which we are forced to maintain physical distance, Mastercard joins IFF Panama as part of the “No contact, but united” campaign in order to bring film lovers to the best stories to your home. On behalf of everyone at Mastercard, we congratulate you and hope that these funds allow you to bring your film and upcoming projects to more people. Together we are achieving something that is priceless. ” said Carolina Dix, Director of Marketing Central America for Mastercard.
The IFF Panama team wishes its director, Karim Aïnouz many successes and thanks the public who enjoyed our programming and was part of this vote.
