Twee prijzen op filmfestival



In het Italiaanse Trente heeft De terugkeer van de monniken op Schiermonnikoog de prijs voor de beste documentaire gewonnen op het Religion Today Film Festival. Daarnaast won onze documentaire de SIGNIS juryprijs, ingesteld door de World Catholic Association for Communication.

Uit de juryrapporten:

Visually remarkable, this film not only enters into the meaning of faith in God among the individual monks it portrays, but simultaneously exposes the sweeping changes in the world today where religious life has to find new meaning.

A documentary with high cinematographic quality which deals in a respectful and delicate way with the life of a small community of Cistercian monks at the eve of a big decision. In a good cinematic language, the director engages us in the questions raised by their faith, doubts and the construction of the project for their future life. You don’t have to be a monk to share theirs stories.

De documentaire is ook geselecteerd voor het Noordelijk Film Festival en het Dhaka International Film Festival 2017 in Bangladesh.
