Awarded films


The jury motivated its decision for awarding the feature documentary Children of the Enemy: “For its strong and passionate portrayal of the Swedish-Chilean grandfather Patricio in search of his seven neglected grandchildren in the al-Hol refugee camp in Syria. Children of the Enemy raises important ethical questions around human guilt, responsibility and inheritance of trauma, while avoiding a one-sided perspective on the complex political issues and showing how the European political diplomacy didn’t play the most elegant role in humanitarian efficacy.”
