The Jury of the Goethe-Institut awards
Maurizius Staerkle-Drux (Germany, Switzerland) for the film
Die Böhms – Architektur einer Familie (Concrete Love)
The Documentary Film Prize of the Goethe-Institut is awarded to "Concrete Love", a film that weaves together multiple stories about love, passion for architecture, and four generations of German history. The young director Maurizius Staerkle-Drux very successfully paints a touching portrait of 94-year old Gottfried Böhm and his family. The film combines sensitive observations, intimate interviews, and impressive cinematographic explorations of an outstanding architectural legacy in order to create a lasting impression of the buildings and the people.
