Winner Short Film Competition 2018

Jury Statement

The decision wasn’t easy for us. All short film shown in this festival have a very strong vision and dealing with contemporary issues based on their countries origins. The film we choose is a rather silent poetic and mysterious film. It creates imagination without giving answers. The film could be experienced as a hidden political critic or analysis, or as an struggle with every day with our inner demons. It is a film which shows deeply human experience, both surrealistic and real. Although the film has a metaphorical level, its very ironical, surreal and absurd on a very touching basis.

Statement by Barbara Huber, Angela Christlieb, Erich Ledersberger
