WITH THE GIRL OF BLACK SOIL – JEON SOO-IL 2009
ART CINEMA AWARD // Ciné Junior 2009
The Jury’s Verdict: We chose to give an award to this film for its aesthetic qualities, its powerful staging and sincere acting (the young girl and her brother). We also wanted to celebrate the story of a hero in a daily family drama. She epitomizes the hope in a collapsing world made for adults (the jobless father is alcoholic and distanciates himself from his responsibilities). Nevertheless, the film never becomes too sensitive but gives a realistic point of an unfamiliar situation.
