Stefano Savona's Samouni Road won the "Oeil d'or" Award for Best Documentary in Cannes 2018. Presented at the Directors' Fortnight, the film blends documentary and animation (curated by Simone Massi) to take account of the killing of 29 people, belonging to the same family, during the Operation Cast Lead conducted by the Israeli army in 2009.

The film will be released theatrically next fall thanks to Cineteca di Bologna. The jury's motivation reads: "For the intelligence and the right distance of the perspective, the sensitivity of the gaze, the brilliant and subtle use of animation, and the power of its narrative proposition. All these elements contribute to an exceptional closeness to those trapped in the unbearable reality of the Israeli-Palestianian conflict."
