Student Award

“Human beings are human insofar as they bear witness to the inhuman.” This sentence by Giorgio Agamben indicates how the films in the programme of the Student Award are meant to be watched. The films portray bitter stories and moreover prove the feather light line, the personal and the peculiar side of life in the world that we live in.
