Katrin Hillgruber (Germany), Giuseppe Sedia (Italy), Angelo Mitchievici (Romania)

Awarded films

Jury justification: “Gunshots in Sibiu/Hermannstadt in December 1989. Experiencing a revolution on the screen can be uncomfortable and captivating at the same time. The director manages to give shape to the historical chaos by creating a film that goes beyond the aesthetics of the Romanian New Wave”.
