NIRGENDLAND is a cinematic reconstruction of a court case in which a daughter and granddaughter accuse their father/grandfather of abuse. Helen Simon assembles together the testimony of the daughter with the trial testimony of the granddaughter, who took her own life after the acquittal of the accused. The author succeeds in showing the mechanisms of abuse as it continues into the next generation. Her film uncovers the tragedy of innocence and guilt and exposes a scandalous verdict of the court. For the courage to take on this difficult issue and its emphatically objective implementation, this film earns the prize of Jury DOK.deutsch.
