Zirdzin, hallo! (Hello, horse!), (by Laila Pakalnina, 2017)

“Zirdzin, hallo!”, by Laila Pakalnina, obtained the Best Documentary Jury Award 2018.

  • The Jury, composed of Mercedes Álvarez, Sara Xiol and Raül Ruiz, awarded the Jury Prize for Best Documentary, to “Zirdzin, hallo!”, by Laila Pakalnina. The Jury awarded it “for the original look of the director, which allows us to discover a new reading of the landscape, with the intermediation of the elements created by man, that stand between the viewer and nature. A very suggestive vision with a great planning and assembly work, in short, a minimalist short film that is at the same time very expressive“.
  • Also, the Jury granted a Special Mention to “Cucli”, by Xavier Marrades, because, “from a small story of a character that is very close, and of his intimate relationship with a bird, he offers us his particular vision of universal themes such as mourning, death, the meaning of life, and acceptance of the positive and negative aspects of existence, showing love for the protagonists without falling into the melodramatic excess “.
  • The Audience Award also went to “Cucli“.
