Summer White (Blanco de Verano) / México (Director: Rodrigo Ruiz Patterson; Screenwriters: Rodrigo Ruiz Patterson, Raúl Sebastián Quintanilla; Principal Cast: Adrián Rossi; Sophie Alexander-Katz; Fabián Corres). Rodrigo is an introverted 13-year-old who spends much of his time alone—except when he is with his mother, Valeria, who happens to be his best friend, his protector, and his entire world. Rodrigo believes their relationship is intimate and anchored in trust, until one morning he wakes up to a stranger in the house: Fernando, his mother’s new boyfriend, who had spent the night. Immediately Rodrigo’s domain is completely disrupted, and he is left with no choice but to fight back and reconstruct the solace he once had. World Cinema Dramatic Competition.
