Honorary Mention< >
for an extraordinary german documentary film
Marco Wilms (Germany) for the film
ART WAR is a breathtaking, sensual story about the connection between ancient art from the age of the Pharaohs and modern Egyptian graffiti art and how it can still be used as a weapon with explosive political force today.
Marco Wilms boldly follows his protagonists to chaotic scenes in the streets of Cairo and thus becomes part of this art with his camera. The film is an unmistakeable call for resistance to extremism.
