  • Juan Antonio Moreno Amador’s last piece confirms the career of a filmmaker who possesses a very special way of looking.

  • Words of Caramel


    In a refugee camp in the Sahara desert, lives a deaf boy who wishes to learn how to write so that he could express the words of his best friend, the young camel Caramel.

    “Words of Caramel” is a deaf-short-film and a sensorial experience that invites spectators to feel, see and listen through the deaf world, enjoying the beauty and silence of the desert. However, the world of Kori is unusual because he has always lived in refugee camps of the Sahara unknowing the sign language. He needs to learn to write in order to overcome the barriers of his lack of communication and thus, reclaim his education rights.

    Welcome to the silent world of Kori and his camel friend Caramel.

      The director achieves an elegant composition, with a well-adjusted rhythm – Nacho Ruiz Capillas’s wisdom helps his thing- and the camera accompanies the growth and learning of this young one in an environment where freedom does not exist.
