CICAE Prize

That Trip We Took With Dad , Directed by: Anca Miruna LĂZĂRESCU

From the laudation:

“Out of all the films, That Trip We Took With Dad showed the most authenticity to the story, and also from a visual and dramatic perspective. It emerged above all especially because of the cultural and historic relevance to the modern audience.”

 

FIPRESCI Prize

Land of Mine , Directed by: Martin ZANDVLIET

From the laudation:

„On the surface, Martin Zandvliet’s Land of Mine looks like a classical World War II movie, but it’s much more interesting than that. Let’s begin with the fact, that it’s story takes place after finishing the war, and it shows us a not well known part of European history. It has the bravery to tell that not all the German soldiers were bad guys, but lots of them were victims of the era, and to be the winner of the war doesn’t mean being a good guy too.” 

 

Prize of the International Ecumenical Jury

Land of Mine , Directed by: Martin ZANDVLIET

From the laudation:

„The film pictures the dehumanization of war, yet develops into a story of reconciliation and restorative justice. As Land of Mine is evolving from hate through sensibility towards compassion, it is an inspiring story even for today.”
