Ecumenical Award at Miskolc Film Festival

Monday 19 September 2016, by SIGNIS

Miskolc, September, 19th, 2016 (SIGNIS/INTERFILM). At the 13th Miskolc International Film Festival Jameson CineFest, the Ecumenical Jury, appointed by SIGNIS and INTERFILM, awarded its Prize to Under Sandet (Land of Mine), directed by Martin Zandvliet (Denmark, Germany, 2015).

The jury commented that Under Sandet is excellent storytelling about a rather unknown dramatic post-WWII event. The casting is perfectly matching the drama and is strengthened by outstanding photography and sound. The film pictures the dehumanization of war, yet develops into a story of reconciliation and restorative justice. As Under Sandet is evolving from hate through sensibility towards compassion, it is an inspiring story even for today. Not only for individuals in a tensed global actuality, but also for societies, guiding out of ‘demonising the other’.

The members of the Jury were Florin-Ioan Silaghi, Romania (President); Praxedis Bouwman, Netherlands; Viktor Kókai-Nagy, Hungary and Mark Téglasy, Hungary
