International Jury for the Doc Alliance Award
Christian Sønderby Jepsen (Denmark) for the film
Testamentet (The Will)
The Doc Alliance jury is thrilled to award its prize to a film about a contemporary Danish family oscillating between hope and despair. The film follows two brothers, all struggling with personal demons and misfortune, who stand to inherit millions when their grandfather dies. However, their deeply broken family presents a formidable obstacle, and matters become complex. The filmmaker follows and portrays these sometimes funny, and often sad, events with a distinct voice and cinematic vision. For this dramatic and emotional journey, conveyed with empathy and power, the Doc Alliance jury awards its prize to THE WILL, directed by Christian Sønderby Jepsen.
