Prize of the Youth Jury< >
Filmschule Leipzig e. V.
Aneta Kopacz (Poland) for the film
By changing from close - What is it worth for fighting, if not for those one loves?
A young woman diagnosed with cancer lives in a rural area of Poland, together with her little son and her husband. Joanna is not afraid of death, but of leaving her family behind.
Strong emotional pictures let us clearly feel that there has been a particularly strong bond between mother and son. Both love it most to spend their time together.
Up to panoramic views and back, the camera provides an understanding of the psychic situation of the people in the film, while respecting their privacy at the same time.
The film has deeply moved us, so that we will keep it in our memories for a long time. It teaches us all that one should never give up, however tragic the circumstances are, and always battle on.
