No man is an island, it is said. In this beautifully observed film, we follow Mark, a lonely young man in search of happiness. Through his daily encounters he struggles with his desires and his fears, until at last he is forced to come face to face with himself.

About the directors

Juan Francisco Pardo was born in Aruba in 1977. At the age of 17 he began working for a local TV station, before studying film production in Spain and engaging in media studies in the Netherlands. He currently works as a freelance video producer in Aruba, and has made numerous commercials, public service videos and short films.

Aruba-born contemporary artist Ryan Oduber bought his first video camera in 2000 and started making video art and commercials. He shot and edited the short film Muhe Frida, which won the prize for best Aruban short at the Aruba International Film Festival 2011. 10 Ave Maria is his first film as a director.
