Grand Prix of the Deutsches Kinderhilfswerk for the Best Film

Jutro bedzie lepiej  by Dorata Kędzierzawska

The jury was struck by the beautiful combination of playfulness and humour within a tense story of survival. The film-makers, with assured direction and beautiful cinematography, have crafted a moving story set in a harsh world where children are free to control their lives but not their destinies. With exceptional performances that create light in the darkest of situations, this film impressively sets an intimate and personal story against an important political and social backdrop.
