Commendation of the Ecumenical Jury, Oberhausen 2018

The never-ending path of growing up means unfolding oneself. The waiting room of life is full of intentions to grow beyond oneself and to learn to live in reality with one's own limitations - neither achievable nor bearable without the experience of friendship as a comparison, support or source of unhappiness. Erh Hao Chiu Yi is the intense and successful portrait of the challenges of friendship, cohesion, community, comparison, ambition, mediocrity and the talents of two young women on this path.
