Prize of the Ecumenical Jury, Karlovy Vary 2008

Set in modern day Indonesia, "The Photograph" tells the story of Sita, a country woman forced to work as a prostitute in a big city in order to support her sick grandmother taking care of her child. Sita finds shelter in the studio of an old photographer with a tragic past. The photographs reveal the truths and lies of their lives. We honour this beautifully photographed film in which guilt can be confessed and caring for each other becomes essential.
