We are so happy and honoured that The Distant Barking of Dogs took home the Best First Appearance Award at IDFA 2017.
The film is directed by Simon Lereng Wilmont and produced by Monica Hellström and had its world premiere at IDFA 2017.
The jury gave the following statement: "Vulnerable lives of mesmerizing characters in the fringes of a warzone. We were at a place most of us would never go, unless the filmmaker invited us there. Natural scenes communicate a heartwarming bond between grandmother and her grandsons. Moments that the characters take us to were trusted and unfolded. The craftsmanship came together in this film, it is not an easy task. "
An extra screening of the film has been added to the schedule, so the remaining IDFA screenings are as follows:
Thu 23 November 19:00 @Tuschinski 1
Sat 25 November 10:15 @ Tuschinski 4
