In the 19th Olympia International Film Festival for Children and Young People which was held in December 2016 in Greece, an Indian film named “Ottaal” (The Trap) won CIFEJ Prize. This film is directed by Jayaraz Rajasekharan Nair and is the story of an eight-year-old boy named Kuttappayi, who is an orphan and goes to live with his kind grandfather. For a while, things are idyllic but Kuttappayi’s grandfather falls ill, and an opportunity seemingly arises for the young boy to go to school in the city. But all is not what it seems. The CIFEJ jury member who selected the film as the winner was Eszter Vuojala from Finland.
