DEFA Sponsoring Prize for an outstanding German documentary film

Yael Reuveny (Germany, Israel) for the film
Schnee von gestern (Farewell, Herr Schwarz)

Yael Reuveny felt a growing sense of unease after learning that her grandmother’s brother, declared dead a long time ago, survived the Holocaust, the grandmother herself, however, not wanting anything to do with about the offspring of her now dead brother.
The film is a journey of several years of looking at injured souls, dealing with core issues such as betrayal, denial, survival, and reconciliation. Finally, the relief of a healing process can be clearly felt. This confrontational step towards clarification is a courageous one and keeps viewers preoccupied long after the film is over.
