HEART OF SARAJEVO FOR BEST DOCUMENTARY FILM

LANDSCAPES OF RESISTANCE

Serbia, Germany, France

Director: Marta Popivoda

Award in the amount of 3,000 €, sponsored by the Government of Switzerland

The cinematic solution to tell the story about 97 year old Yugoslav partisan Sonja Vujanovic is admirable. And her story is amazing and she talks so well, to the beautiful flow of images created by Ivan Markovic, edited superbly by Jelena Maksimovic. I watched and listened to the powerful old lady’s anti-fascist journey from Belgrade to Auschwitz. What a woman. Courage. The director and co-writer, the grandchild Ana Vujanovic, however, want to link the partisan’s story to their own activism of today. For me it becomes a bit “gemacht”, does not catch my interest… get me back to the old lady, I was thinking.

LES ENFANTS TERRIBLES

Turkey, Germany, France

Director: Ahmet Necdet Çupur

Best film of the Competition Programme - Documentary Film dealing with the subject of human rights. Award in the amount of 3,000 €, sponsored by the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

Very good choice – a family film made by the director/cameraman who returns to the village in Turkey, where his siblings want to break away from the strict conservatism performed by the father. Made with love and painful understanding. You often feel embarrassed being with the family – that’s strong.
