Commendation of the Ecumenical Jury, Chemnitz 2020


My Little Sister
Directed by: 

The classically narrated, touching children's film leads into a remote Bashkir village at the end of the Second World War. The pranks of the 6-year-old Jamil reflect this time and the longing for the return of his father from the Front. The loving reception of the frightened orphan girl Oksana in the family becomes a powerful image of friendship, trust, responsibility and confidence. Outstanding: the performances of the two young protagonists.
