First Films First


\’\’Murina manages to convincingly tell of the daily violence within a family that is physically isolated. … The abuse becomes apparent when a foreigner arrives, and he provides the contrast, the mirror. This award is given for the delicacy with which the theme is addressed, for the performances of the actors, and for the ever-present tension.\’\’ (an excerpt from the statement about the Cineuropa award ex-aequo)


MURINA keeps receiving awards and now the film has received the Grand Jury Prize, the Cineuropa award ex-aequo, and the Special Mention of the Critics\’ Award at Brussels\’ Mediterranean Film Festival.


Antoneta Alamat Kusijanovic\’s debut MURINA had premiered in Cannes Directors\’ Fortnight where it has received the Camera D\’or for the best first film in Cannes Film Festival. It is the third of the five completed feature-length fiction films which have been developed via Goethe-Institut\’s FIRST FILMS FIRST.
