The prize, provided by Adiko Bank, was worth €4,000 and was handed out by a jury consisting of filmmakers Dana Budisavljević, Ágnes Kocsis and Elmir Jukić. In their explanation, they stated that the film “easily finds its way to viewers' hearts because of the spontaneity and self-irony of its leading actress and directress” Mladenović. In addition, they claimed that it further blurs the lines between documentary and fiction filmmaking.
In the same category, covering filmmakers' first and second feature films, Alejandro Landes' Sundance-premiered Monos [+leggi anche:
