Honorary Mention< >
For an extraordinary German Documentary Film
Robin Humboldt and Laurentia Genske (Germany) for the film
Laurentia Genske and Robin Humboldt go no further than their own back yard to explore the universe of a so-called social hot spot – a universe that many of us are not aware of. The audience gets to know protagonists whose living circumstances deprive them of most opportunities. The film, however, does at no point reduce them to their hopelessness. It rather approaches them in a way that not only visualizes their loneliness and impending failure, but also captures their humorous resilience.
