  • Thank you for my film Sous Tension. My team and I are really thrilled with what the film is experiencing across the globe! Under tension goes around the world and to pass between the eyes of your selectors and jury is an honor that you do us! Thank you very much for everything, you knew how to open your heart and your feelings about violence against families but also knew how to appreciate the artistic side of the film. Thank you very much, you are a great Festival! Mireille Fievet
