Jury Statement :
Pierre-Yves Vandeweerd creates in 75 minutes an impressive audiovisual film story of wandering and fleeing on the borders of Nagorno-Karabakh, an Armenian enclave in Azerbaijan. The film painfully unleashes the feeling of torn souls who are doomed forever – ghosts of genocide and war that has raged the area for over twenty years, carrying the melancholy of the Eternals within them. The jury is impressed by the film’s formal beauty, the power of its cinematography and the beautiful intensely arranged soundtrack. A sophisticated, disturbing, bitter, melancholic film that goes to the core.
Le festival a eu lieu du 7 au 9 avril 2018.
