SIGNIS –WACC Human Rights Award 2017 goes to "Maman Colonelle"
Miskolc, September, 18th, 2017 (SIGNIS/INTERFILM). The film Arrhythmia, by Boris Khlebnikov (Russia/Finland/Germany, 2017, 1h54), has been awarded by the ecumenical jury, appointed by SIGNIS and INTERFILM.
Arrhythmia tells the story of Oleg and Katya, a young couple dedicated to their work as emergency medics. But he drinks too much and she is disappointed by their relationship. As in arrhythmia, the couple is in crisis and love at the same time. With the use of fiction and documentary, the film asks, in ordinary situations, questions about the value of life and human dignity under financial pressure. It shows with humor and sensibility that it is always worth to fight for your rights and that love is always an answer.
The jury members were Beáta Kézdi (Hungary/President), Agoston Erhardt, (Hungary), Christine Ris, (Switzerland) and Magali Van Reeth (France).
