Eastern European Debuts in Warsaw
At the 31st Warsaw International Film Festival (Poland, October 9-18, 2015), the Critics Prize was dedicated to the best eastern European debut. The prize went to “Motherland” (Ana Yurdu) by Senem Tüzen (Turkey, Greece, 2015, 98 min).
Motivation: “The International Critics Prize goes to a rich and thought provoking film that in a simple but effective way depicts the intense conflict of a woman struggling to find her current position between tradition and modernity.”
Jury members were Aleksander Huser, Norway (“NY TID”, “CINEMA”, Nettavisen”), Ohad Landesman, Israel (“Doctalk.co.il”, “Cinemateque”, “Takriv”), Barbara Giza, Poland (“Kwartalnik Filmowy”, “Polski Radio Program III”). Sales: Zela Film, www.zelafilm.com/motherland.html
