Prize of the Ecumenical Jury, Miskolc 2023

Through the eye of a handheld camera viewers are confronted with a chaotic choreography of people running for their lives and finding their way in a moral vacuum after the toppling of a dictatorship. The film asks the question: what values will we fall back to when we are put to the test in a political and existential crisis? Are we willing to bring a sacrifice for the common good or are we only serving our personal interests? Despite the collapse of the state, we see individuals making efforts to follow ethical values wanting to reconstruct a society based on justice, peace and reconciliation.  We are witnessing the historical situation in Rumania 1989 and at the same time this film offers us a story people all over the world can relate to. By telling stories like this Tudor Giurgiu invites cinema audiences to remember that you don’t have to be a hero to make a difference.
