Untitled, Braguino, Delta, Little Yellow Boots, The Ashes Remain Warm are the winners of Pelicam 2018. The festival announced its winner, Sunday, 24th June, after four days of films, debates and other special events in Tulcea.
The Pelicam 2018 Award has been given to Untitled (Michael Glawogger, Monika Willi, Austria, 2017).
The film gives testimony to Michael Glawogger’s radical honesty about himself and the world, as well as his approach to filmmaking as a definitive existential act – so radically, that he pursued it up to his death. Monika Willi has finished his work in a highly respectful and sensitive way, creating a movie that stands as his testament. The film ultimately is an archive of Glawogger’s last journey as much as an embodiment of an existential journey itself, said the jury.
