Nicky's Family by Matej Minac awarded at the 28th International Film Festival in Jerusalem

We are delighted to announce that NICKY’S FAMILY was the recipient of the Festival’s FORUM FOR THE PRESERVATION OF AUDIO-VISUAL MEMORY IN ISRAEL AWARD.

Here are the Jury Remarks:

“The filmmakers succeeded in making intelligent, precise, and clear use of archival materials that were collected from many and varied sources. The archival materials were artistically intertwined alongside the historical reconstruction of this wonderful and heartwarming story portrayed in this humane and monumental film. The archives, the drama, and the testimonials combine in an unusual collage. The clever use of color in the archival films creates a differentiation between the Nazi enemy, which is painted in a cold blue tone versus the victims and their saviors, whose shades appear in warm brown tonalities. The subtitles appearing in the body of the picture aid the viewer to situate the events within the archival materials.”
