The Jury, comprised of Christine Camdessus (FIPADOC Festival Director), Veronika Janatková (DokuBaku Co-founder & Programmer) and Diana Tabakov (Doc Alliance Executive Derector), pointed out in the statement: "How unwelcome can one be in this world? A very unique connection with characters allows the director to unfold the nature of Khodor's vital dilemna in a vivid and profoundly memorable way. The vigorous cinematic experience engraves in the viewer the complex reality of daily life in a camp."
