A still from Prayers for the Stolen (2021).

REVIEW: ‘Prayers for the Stolen’ shows the horrific status of childhood in Mexico

Grace Hall, Contributing Writer November 18, 2021
In June 2021, the film was selected to compete in the Un Certain Regard section at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival and won a special mention; it also won the Best International Feature Film at the 94th Academy Awards. It’s no wonder why; not only does the film highlight the femicide occurring in Mexico so clearly, but it shows raw human emotion through the eyes of a budding child, coming of age in a place where she could be harmed at any moment. Constant tension keeps everyone in the village on edge, reflecting to viewers the unique type of torture that is witnessed by those experiencing life in rural Mexican villages.
