The Salamander Child

von Théo Degen

Begründung der Jury

The film is more than just a father-son story; it tells of the connection between this world and the hereafter. Even the film itself communicates between reality and the unseen world, between personal life story and mythical storytelling. With little dialogue, strong images and impressive sound design, the award-winning film effortlessly blurs these worlds together. Through a tender look at its main characters, the film shows us how we can find ourselves and our allies in a lost world.
