Begründung der Jury

This masterfully crafted short takes the audience on a captivating journey of belonging, inclusion, first love and individualism. The perfectly balanced genre film keeps the audience guessing by intertwining its suspenseful fantastical elements with the cold uncompromising reality of a low-income housing childhood. The short explores, in a fascinatingly unique way the vampire mythos as seen through the eyes of a 10 year old child, effortlessly charming portrayed by Katell Varvat. 
Through its flawless synergy of acting, soundscape and camera work we are placed in the everyday reality of her struggle for self identity, as we’re invited to experience “Ewa’s” juvenile, macabre, dark world.
