  • Emerging Swiss Talent Award (Critics' Prize) – LAS TORERAS by Jackie Brutsche

    Jury statement:
    The Critics' Jury is very happy to give the ‘Emerging Swiss Talent Award’ to a film that insists on the importance of art as a vessel for understanding and healing. But not only that. In the hands of the director art and cinema really becomes an existential act. The film deals with mental illness and fragile or even toxic family relations, investigation the story of the director’s mother who took her own life. By challenging the cinematic conventions, brilliantly mixing several artistic approaches with conventional documentary film making, the director constantly keeps us on our toes and delivers a moving and original film about memory and the power of storytelling.
    Jury: Hanns-Georg Rodek / film critic / Germany Nataliia Serebriakova / film critic / Ukraine, Germany Nanna Frank Rasmussen / film critic, journalist / Denmark
