Prize of the Interreligious Jury, Nyon 2012

The film focuses in a multi-layered manner on the siege of Leningrad during the Second World War. Thanks to a precise and moving construction of images and sounds, the filmmaker succeeds in showing the contradiction between the witness' individual memory and the instrumentalization of history by political power. Individual destinies put into question the retrospection of the past and reveal the manipulation of human beings and their recollection.
