Balkan Documentary Competition Winner: “Depth Two” by Ognjen Glavonić.
Jury: Eric Hynes, Marek Septimus, Maria Bonsanti
Statement: For a film that we all found to be as cinematically accomplished as it is morally devastating, employing a language to fit its subject that combines audio witness with footage of tragically unpeopled landscapes, putting the viewer in a position of both historical reflection and present outrage, and providing a layered, emotional and intellectual engagement that we won’t soon forget, it is with deep admiration, gratitude and enthusiasm that we award Best Balkan Documentary to DEPTH TWO by Ognjen Glavonic.
