Youth Jury Award 2022 - BY KINEPOLIS
Youth Jury Award – BY KINEPOLIS : 2 000€
de Eefje Blankevoort & Els van Driel
« We, the Youth Jury are honored to be able to attend the 12th edition of the Luxembourg City Film Festival. We have had the chance to watch several social critical movies in the past days as from sexual assault to migration and from France to Afghanistan, leading us back to Luxembourg with new views on how different life as a teenager can be.
Before announcing our winner, we would like to give a special mention to the movie „You resemble me“ from Dina Amer. The movie is a mix between fiction and investigative journalism which is about a woman who everyone lost faith in. Therefore we highly recommend you to watch it.
However, after long discussion, one specific movie always stayed in the back of our minds. The story of Hammoudi, SK and the brothers Jano and Shiro emotionally touched us the most. We were impressed by the camera movements which gave us the sensation to be with them.
The Youth Jury of Luxembourg City Film Festival 2022 decided to award the prize to „Shadow Game“ by Eefje Blankevoort and Els van Driel, a politically motivated film that includes an activist project.
Congratulations and thank you for this delightful experience! ».
