UIP Award, Locarno Festival

by Cristina Picchi. Russia, 13', documentary-experimental.

A portrait of a season - a journey through North Russia and Siberia, through the feelings and thoughts of the people who have to cope with one of the world’s harshest climates; a reality where the boundary between life and death is so thin that it is sometimes almost non-existent, where civilization constantly both fights and embraces nature and its millenarian rules and rites. A reflection on life, on adaptation and on the immutable cycles of existence.

by Luís Urbano & Sandro Aguilar. Portugal, 22', fiction.

Beautiful, truly Portuguese seascapes swept before my eyes. Tied up in these images was my youth, my paradise lost.
