Berlin-Brandenburg Short Award – Ties

The film is like a Japanese Iku, leaving important space to the spectator. It shows the invisible thread of feelings, the intimate link to objects & siblings. And like the Beatles song: She is leaving home after living alone for so many years… bye bye …

The Berlin-Brandenburg Short Award – Best Film – with a 6000€ cash prize donated by Medienboard Berlin Brandenburg – goes to Ties by Dina Velikovskaya, Germany & Russian Federation.
