"RED" WITH ANOTHER TWO AWARDS
Within just a few days, Karina Węgiełek's film won both the first prize in its category at the Prvi Kadar festival in Bosnia and Herzegovina and an award for cinematography at the prestigious festival in Thessaloniki.
"Red" took first place for a student short film in the "Key to Film" category, sharing it with Hugo Salvaire's "All That Left". In the justification, the Jury emphasized that these are mature psychological dramas in which complex family mechanisms and the gradation of emotions - from love to damnation - are re-analyzed. Both films emphasize the relationship between parents and children.
The second award that Karina Węgiełek's film received this week is the special recognition - Cinematic Achievement Award. It was awarded by Thess International Short Film Festival, a prestigious short film festival in Greece.
The movie "Red" is about the scraps of life of Judyta and her father Zbigniew, shown across several days following the death of Judyta’s brother, Marcin, killed in a car accident. As they try to come to terms with the void left by a loss of a loved one, all their mutual resentment and finger pointing is unexpectedly interrupted by a stranger: Red.
