Golden Horn for the director of the Best Film: for Tora Mårtens, the director of COLOMBIANOS, in the international documentary competition at Krakow Film Festival 2013.
JURY VERDICT:
„With the camera always ready to catch the right moment and the right place, with an intimate yet never embarrassing approach, with a unique access and a lot of respect for the characters, the filmmaker Tora Mårtens and cameraman Erik Vallsten follow the protagonists to deliver a universal message of coming to terms with how much family members can care for each other – and of understanding that we barely have control over our own lives and very limited responsibility towards others. Set against the problem of drugs and alcohol addiction, this family drama unfolds, leaving us thinking not only about Pablo, Fernando and their mother but also about ourselves.“
