Prize of the Ecumenical Jury, Warsaw 2016

The jury awards its Prize to "Heartstone" for its comprehensive vision of a childhood close to nature in a remote Icelandic village. The film describes the shifting feelings of two friends at the verge of maturity searching for their identity. Adapting to changing social surroundings, their relationship will have to get along with their family members and friends, boys and girls... and ongoing gossip. In a delicate way the director describes the ability for rebirth.
