”On Suffocation” bästa kortfilm på Nordisk Panorama
24 Sep

Vid tisdagskvällens (24/9) avslutningsgala på dokumentär- och kortfilmsfestivalen ”Nordisk Panorama – Best Nordic Shorts & Documentaries” i Malmö, utsåg juryn Jenifer Malmqvists film On Suffocation till bästa nordiska kortfilm. 


On Suffocation är en dialoglös berättelse om en avrättning och en kommentar till de system som människan underordnar sig; en historia om hierarki på liv och död. On Suffocation har under året tilldelats flera priset och uppmärksammats både nationellt och internationellt sedan premiären på Sundance Film festival i början av året. ”On Suffocation” visas på SVT den 20 oktober i år.


Juryns motivering:

”A great short film is supposed to be bigger than itself. In its short and minimalist dimension it has to combine all the elements composing cinematic language to create a universal portrait of the world, outside of any logic of time and place: a small frame that contains a multitude of meanings, opening a discussion on the human being, his feelings, fears and the contradictions of today’s society. It has to be a moving experience, almost physical, where we feel the urge and need of the director to tell a story, reacting to the world with his or her instinct and honesty. A film struck us for containing all these elements and managing, without dialogue or music, to create a perfectly balanced film, in which nothing is missing or redundant. For all this reasons, and more, amongst the convincing selection of the 2013 Nordisk Panorama Short Film Competition, the Jury unanimously decided to award On Suffocation, by Jenifer Malmqvist, Sweden.”


Alessandro Marcionni (Locarno International Film Festival), Catherine Colas (ZDF/ARTE) and Stian Kristiansen (director).
