Statement of Berlinare Youth Jury about Stop-Zemlia by Kateryna Gornostai, Ukraine:
"The film convincingly covers a variety of important topics which appeal to us as young people. Platonic love, queerness, solidarity and psychological stress reinforce the effect of the film as an authentic coming-of-age story. By virtue of creative visualisation techniques, it becomes clear in an artistic manner how our generation dreams, feels and experiences life. The message is conveyed that it is part of life to face certain fears in order to be able to enjoy the most exciting years of youth."
Congratulations to Kateryna Gornostai and her team!
