The 22nd edition of Sarajevo Film Festival closed this Saturday with the Award Ceremony. The Heart of Sarajevo for Best Documentary was awarded to Romanian director Monica Lazurean-Gorgan for her film A Mere Breath, which was supported by the Institute of Documentary Film.
A Mere Breath explores the profoundly contradictory nature of family love. Both a journey of initiation and a theological parable, the film follows seven years in the life of Sicrea family in Romania, capturing trials and tribulations of Dobrin who is waiting for a miracle that will help his youngest daughter get up from her wheelchair. In 2010, Romanian director Monica Lazurean-Gorgan participated with her project in the international training programme for documentary professionals Ex Oriente Film. The Heart of Sarajevo award for Best Documentary includes the amount of 3,000 € awarded to the winner. Congratulations!
