"COMMUNION" WINS IN TRIESTE
On January 28, the awards of Trieste Film Festival were given. "Communion" by Anna Zamecka returns from Italy with the audience award.
Trieste International Film Festival is held since 1989 and currently is one of the most important festivals in Central and Eastern Europe. During this year's edition of the festival, the documentary film "Communion" by Anna Zamecka was honoured with the audience award for the best documentary film, Alpe Adria Cinema Award.
"Communion" is a documentary film about 14-year-old Ola, who not only takes care of the ineffective father, autistic brother and the mother who lives separately; but most of all, she tries to bring the family together. She lives with the hope that she would be able to bring her mother back home. The pretext to meet her is the Holy Communion of the 13-year-old Nikodem, and Ola assumes full responsibility for preparing an ideal family celebration. Nikodem himself observes the struggles of his loved ones from his own, unusual perspective.
