The Erste Bank ExtraVALUE Film Award 2015 goes to Jakob Brossmann for Lampedusa in Winter.
A touching, distressing and simultaneously soothing documentary. In both a political and optimistic way, it shows a small, closed off world in an exemplary manner. Community in the best sense of the word. The island and its inhabitants stand for a dignified life under particularly difficult circumstances. The film is impressive in its humanity and its strength of conviction that problems can be solved together.
The Erste Bank ExtraVALUE Film Award 2015 goes to Claudia Larcher for Self.
Skin, our most familiar and intimate sensory organ, turns into a fascinating acoustic and visual landscape of the soul, full of depths of an unknown, mysterious life. There’s method in the way this film looks at things. It’s a view that not only wants to show something, but also explore new, foreign worlds in a seemingly familiar environment with intense persistence. The results so far have aroused a desire for more.
