Awards of the INTERFILM Jury

For a Moment, Freedom
Directed by:

Arash T. Riahi chooses a perspective scarcely known to a big issue of our time: the life of refugees. He succeeds in combining typical stories with individual faces and in touching the audience emotionally without betraying the central aspects of his theme. With sensitivity he switches between tragic and humour and portrays the asylum seekers in their variety.
