The jury statement

“An astonishing fairytale film that takes viewers to the birthplace of humanity and civilization, explaining what the latter has become. Following events in Sudan, which form a bittersweet mosaic of surreal situations, people and places, the film questions the essence of our European civilization and exposes its narcissist cynicism, greed and appalling hypocrisy. It is a universal and deeply personal film, evoking both laughter and chills” wrote the Jury in their decision.


The jury members

Nino Kirtadze, Aleš Suk i Manuel Rougeron
