JURY STATEMENT PRIZE FOR THE BEST CONTRIBUTION TO THE NRW COMPETITION
Memories do not follow a chronological order Â– nor does Britta WandaogoÂ’s film.
Her 12-year-old daughter Kaddi thinks about the meaning of life and the role she plays in her German and African families. The filmmaker finds material in her archive which makes long-forgotten qualities and strengths visible to Kaddi. This very personal, almost intimate dialogue between the motherÂ’s images and the daughtersÂ’s words shows how memories can be cultivated to make the here and now more comprehensible.
Filmprize Â– GROSSE KLAPPE Â”GROSSE KLAPPEÂ” awards European films promoting an aesthetical approach to documentary culture and the political consciousness of children and adolescents.
