“FIPRESCI International Critics Award 2019 ” for
A Moon for My Father.
Our winning film is both intimate and bold. We meet two artists who sculpt their work around death. One feels that she is carrying death in her body, the other is mourning the death of a parent. But together they sculpt life in a miraculous way. The film is brave and never pitiful, though the battle at times is daring. It is a visual, poetic diary, put into a larger socio-politic context, making it a multilayered documentary. “FIPRESCI International Critics Award 2019 ” goes to A Moon for My Father by Mania Akbari and Douglas White.
