"Armed Lullaby" - International Festival of Film Schools Munich/ Special Mention by the Jury, awarded the "Prix Interculturel"

       

Interfilm-Jury: "Der animierte Dokumentarfilm über den Abchasischen Bürgerkrieg zeigt die Flucht aus der Sicht von vier Kindern und vier verschiedene Fluchtwege. Dieser Film berührt mit seinen ausdrucksstarken Bildern und dem Mut, unterschiedliche Techniken zu verweben. Die wortlose Sprache des Films ist still und aufwühlend, sie stellt der Grausamkeit des Krieges und dem Elend der Flucht eine sanfte Ästhetik gegenüber, verbindet religiöse Symbolik mit märchenhaften Imaginés und einer berührenden Musik."
