for an outstanding german documentary
Louisa by Katharina Pethke (Germany)
LOUISA tells a surprising story of a sensuous emancipation. The deaf protagonist is by no means depicted suffering from her every-day conflict caused by the inconveniences of her disability, but in her fight for the self-determination of her senses. The filmmaker Katharina Pethke has found a visually and acoustically, but also emotionally convincing form for the content of her film. It strikes the right chord – for eyes, ears, mind and heart.
