YOUTH JURY AWARD – BY KINEPOLIS: 2,000€

ANTIGONE
by Sophie Deraspe

The YOUTH JURY AWARD - BY KINEPOLIS (subsidised with 2,000€) was awarded to Antigone by Sophie Deraspe.

Explaining their reasoning, Sarah Catini, Alyssa Panzone, Christina Linardaki, Maya Spanier, Rachel Fernandes who made up the Youth Jury, stated:

“Regardless of the current pandemic, we, the Youth Jury, have had the chance to attend the 11th edition of the Luxembourg City Film Festival and to watch seven unique films that offered new perspectives on captivating, yet relevant, themes, from migration, to sexuality, representing the diversity of humanity. We had the chance to get in touch with different cultures from all around the world. Our virtual journey took us from Germany, to the United States of America, passing through Canada, Senegal and Russia, sending us back to Luxembourg with new values and impressions.

However, one film really pulled at our heartstrings with its timeless tragedy, awe-inspiring authenticity and colourful composition.  We were moved to tears by the complex topics that were accompanied by fitting songs and the powerful performances of the actors. For all those reasons, the Youth Jury of the Luxembourg City Film Festival 2021 decided to award the Youth Jury Award – by Kinepolis to ANTIGONE by Sophie Deraspe. Congratulations and thank you for this emotional experience!“
