Bildrausch Ring of Film Art

Jury Statment

The film, which the Jury has chosen to receive the price of the international competition of Bildrausch Filmfest Basel 2017, is a film that shows a deep understanding of humanity. It depicts the randomness of life, the realities of human beings and the unpredictability of existence. The filmmaker has a profound grip on weaving the characters’ lives, the trajectory of their narratives and the fragility of their conditions. It is almost unbearable to watch their struggles. The way the frames and the light are composed contextualizes the whole experience and tells us about the filmmaker’s great wisdom. Without undermining the impressive films in competition, we, the Jury,  award the Bildrausch Ring of Film Art unanimously to Colo by Teresa Villaverde.
