Crystal Bear for the Best Film Lal Gece (Night of Silence) by Reis Çelik

We were deeply touched by he brilliant actors in this year’s winning film. They let us take part in the feelings of two people who are imprisoned by family traditions which do not leave them any space for their own decision making and needs. We were especially impressed by the film’s setting - a room where the drama unfolds. Just as for the couple, it is impossible for the audience to leave it.
