Βραβείο UIP, Φεστιβάλ Grimstad του L. Rezan Yeşilbaş (Τουρκία/Turkey, 14΄, μυθοπλασία)

1984: Zeynep, who lives in Diyarbakır with her three children, wants to visit her husband in prison. Zeynep only speaks her mother tongue Kurdish; however, only the Turkish language is allowed to be spoken in prison, so she’s unable to utter a word there. On the other hand, she wants to bring a new pair of shoes to her husband but it’s forbidden to bring anything to prisoners from outside.
