Documentary films shined at the 52nd Krakow Film Festival in Poland. The International Jury, consisting of Jacek Bławut rman (Poland), Luciano Barisone (Switzerland), Hedva Goldschmidt (Israel), Truls Lie (Norway) and Peter Torbiörnsson (Sweden), have decided to award:
- GOLDEN HORN for the Director of the Best Film – Peter Gerdehag, the director of WOMEN WITH COWS (Sweden), which depicts the spirit of love and will of the protagonist, who celebrates life and lives in harmony with nature. The visual poetic treatment of director and cinematographer Peter Gerdehag is exquisite in his love for and loyalty to a vision.
- SILVER HORN for the Director of the Best Medium-Length Documentary – Ida Grøn, the director of THE KID AND THE CLOWN (Denmark), depicting children’s fight for life and how the clown consumed their fear, which in itself is stronger than cinema.
- SILVER HORN for the Director of the Best Feature-Length Documentary – David Fisher, the director of SIX MILLION AND ONE (Israel/Germany/Austria), which is an exemplary portrayal of what happens to the children of a Holocaust victim who visits the places from his past.
- The FIPRESCI (International Federation of Film Critics) Prize: THE FLAT directed by Arnon Goldfinger (Israel, Germany)
