We as a jury felt that the selected film was a poignant and poetic exploration focusing not only on a dialogue between culture and experience, but also between friends. The intimacy between the two protagonists enabled the film to consider issues of body image, iconology and the pressures placed on women in different cultures in an engaging and original manner. The form of storytelling lends itself to such complex discussions and is a fascinating way of approaching the topics raised. It was felt that due to the narrative style of this film and the emotions and debate it evokes it is the perfect film to be honored by the International Federation of Film Societies.
