Les enfants de Troumaron (The Children of Troumaron) in French with English subtitles from Mauritius is a leading contender for AMAA 2014 Award for Best Film film. The film is an adaptation from the award winning screenwriter Ananda Devi's novel "Ève de ses décombres" and directed by Harrikrisna Anenden and Sharvan Anenden. My favourites are these ones I have highlighted.
