“I'M HERE” WINS SPECIAL MENTION
This time, Julia Orlik's animation was awarded a Special Mention at the Internationale Kurzfilmwoche Regensburg.
Internationale Kurzfilmwoche Regensburg is an event devoted entirely to short films. The event takes place in a hybrid form this year. Its program features a total of 191 films from 47 countries. Julia Orlik's award-winning film is one of them.
“I'm Here” tells the story of an elderly man who is looking after his paralysed wife. Despite his old age and own health issues, he tries his best to alleviate her suffering, which is getting more severe every day. He is aided by his daughter, who tries to reconcile the care given to her mother with her own work at the hospital and her personal life. Each of them has different views on how the woman should be looked after, which leads to many arguments.
