Director: Irene Langemann

A striking portrait of an outstanding artist. We discover Petr Pavlensky, for whom social and militant commitment is inseparable from his life and art. By pushing the limits of political art into his body, Pavlensky embodies a powerful denunciation of the Russian political system. The realization is as surgical, just and direct, as its subject.

Special Prize

WIM

Director: Lut Vandekeybus

The director made this which is a portrait of her brother, the star choreographer Wim Vandekeybus. The strength of the film is in the blurring of the boundaries between the life of the choreographer and his everyday life. At times one wonders whether the film is a documentary, a biography or a corporate video of self-promotion. To the viewer to decide.
