for Documentary Films and Videos / Long Metrage (longer than 45 min)
Vodka Factory by Jerzey Sladkowski (Sweden)
The film waives a complex and deep story of human condition where hope and despair live together. By using fictional means and yet being documentary the director handles many characters that gives layer to the film and little by little from a small factory in a Russian city. The film gains space and place and grows into a metaphor of human struggle for happiness and dignity, where the possibility of dream is the only possible way to survive.
