DEFA Sponsoring Prize for an outstanding German documentary film

Thomas Heise (Germany) for the film

Städtebewohner

 

Jury Statement:

Juvenile delinquents in a Mexican prison – in a country where human life is not valued much. In black and white images of poetic roughness the director masterfully captures both the toughness and the foresakenness of his protagonists. This is no social issue film, but a powerful study of underage killers and the inconceivability of violence.
