Commendation of the Ecumenical Jury Locarno 2017

«Vinterbrødre» takes us along into the darkness of a limestone mine where only little light shines through. Two unequal and traumatized brothers fight for a bit of love in a world consisting of hard labor, illegal alcohol transactions and social frostiness. The film shows, through its strong images and an impressive sound design, how primitive life can become, and how strong the desire for humanity.
