The official jury statement on giving the Méliès D’Argent Short Film Award to ABGESTEMPELT at Espoo Ciné International Film Festival

The official jury statement on giving the Méliès D’Argent Short Film Award to ABGESTEMPELT at Espoo Ciné International Film Festival:
“Two themes emerge from this short film, with the first one dealing with otherness. If you are foreign, you are always a suspect and have to prove your innocence. The stronger of the two is that of caring and indifference. A good deed can, nonetheless, bring out mercy even from the deepest abyss.
This image of German, and why not even Finnish, society where people are near but so far away is almost agonisingly true. The story, told in an intensely cinematic fashion, gets started straight away, holds the audience in its grip, rewards the perceptive viewer, and leaves plenty of food for thought.”

Voilà: ABGESTEMPELT (PUNCHED) goes to France in Autumn
