Prize of the Ecumenical Jury, Berlin 2017 (International Competition)

Many of us struggle with some kind of disability – whether physical or mental. On Body and Soul is a touching and twisted love story set in a slaughterhouse. The souls of the main characters seem to be connected but they struggle to come close physically. Ildikó Enyedi creates a tender visual story, activating our senses, while raising questions about our connection to each other. The film shows ways we can overcome our incomplete natures and connect with other physical beings.
