CITATIONS

Best Film Golden Screen Award

I WONDER WHY by Jay Jithin Prakash

for presenting a very sensitive issue in all its intensity by elaborating upon a very mundane, everyday encounter in our society where othering happens in a very ordinarily inhuman manner. In the process, the film succeeds in interrogating taken-for-natural hegemonic notions that rule our minds.

RUNNERS UP

1. DINOSOURI by DANIEL ALLUE (SPAIN)

For taking the viewer on an interesting journey into the solitary but intense mind of the aged whom we tend to ignore and accomodate, and for the brilliant acting performances and camera work

2. THE CULPRIT by MICHAEL RITTMANNSBERGER (AUSTRIA, GERMANY)
For presenting the issue of gay rights from a striking political perspective forcing the viewer to realize the gross injustice perpetrated by the present legal and ethical system

3. TRADING OF OBJECTS by HADIJELDI (IRAN)
For its technical mastery and visually poignant manner in which the theme is conveyed

4. INHIBITIONS OF A POLAR MIND by RAVISHANKAR
For its experimental spirit and visual daring..

5. NJANUM by MANOJ PATTATHIL
For the simple yet striking way in which two states of being are depicted that too from a non-human perspective

6. DAHAM by VIPIN VIJAYAN
For its enigmatic depiction of a state of mind and the effortless way in which it is told.
