Amnesty International Febiofest Award

The silence of the river

Febiofest resumed last year’s activities concerning the imprisoned Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov in awarding the Amnesty International Febiofest Award for the very first time. This award calls attention to dictatorial regimes around the world that unjustly imprison artists and journalists. The three-member jury consisted of Martha Issová, the director of Amnesty International Czech Republic, Mark Martin and the dramaturge of the Rotterdam IFF Gertjan Zuilhof. The jury awarded the prize to The Silence of the River, a Columbian/French/Uruguayan co-production, which concerns a boy without a father, who lives in an evergreen forest, and whose childhood is cut short with the discovery of a corpse washed up by the river. According to the jury, this unexpected gem of a film was shot with minimal resources and its masterful camerawork enables one to experience the time and place of the film’s setting very closely.
