"A Belgrade apartment divided in two tells us the story of a family and of a country"
Director Talal Derki is able to share the intimacy of a family at war
"Muhi - Generally Temporary" and "Almost Heaven"
A film that surprises with a powerful cinematography and the complexity and maturity of its storytelling. It starts from an extremely intimate story of the love of a daughter for her mother, and develops to unveil the History of a country throughout the century and the radical changes that have played a key role in the life of several generations.
This is a film where the main character becomes director. It is an outstanding film in the way it deals with climate change from a global to an individual perspective. It shows how climate change influences the life of an individual, of a family, of a Kenyan community, while also being a threat for every human being around the world.
An extremely beautiful, moving and challenging film, which is a reminder that all around us, there are people in critical situations that need our help to bounce back and regain their hope and their human dignity.
For the innovation of the cinematographic language. With a film crew mostly composed of young Syrians, it has emerged as one of the most distinctive and innovative films of the selection. It reminds that film is a visual art and that it is still possible to use visual art to deal with the most serious and important issues of our time.
We appreciate the courage of the director to make this film but also the courage of the narrative choices that avoid the simplicity of showing the mechanical violence and the consequences of war as we are used to, but on the contrary, to use the suggestive power of the image to reveal inner violence, the coexistence of hatred and love, and how ignorance can transform a father's love into the destruction of his children.
