Robert Kirchhoff (Slovakia) for the film
Kauza Cervanová (Normalization)
For a remarkable journalistic and artistic work about the unsolved murder case of a young woman and a group of wrongly convicted men.
But the film is much more than that. It shows that we cannot escape history, when we build our presence and our future.
The film leads us strongly to the biblical question of what is truth? In a personal way it is a matter of conscience, in society a matter of legal responsibility and justice and in a universal way it is a matter of how to be human.
