For a compelling approach to an urgent topic, for a poetic treatment of a shocking story with unique footage and a rare perspective, for a documentary that touchingly brings out the mundane in a discourse so very often reduced to the abstract and sensational, for a project that sheds light on the absurdities of little things in the grand discourse of flight and displacement and a film that promises to add a valuable dimension to a discussion where it seems that everything has been already said. And in appreciation of the personal strength which this project demands of its team members the jury awarded this project.
