Stockholm Impact Award goes to Anna Jadowska for her film Wild Roses

ab6f962d8384175b_org.jpg

 

For the third year in a row the Stockholm Film Festival will hand out one of the world’s biggest cash prizes for film – The Stockholm Impact Award – together with the City of Stockholm. The prize is worth one million SEK and the winner will also receive a prize designed by the Chinese artist Ai Weiwei. This year, the prize goes to Anna Jadowska for her film Wild Roses.

Nomination: For the sensitive depiction of a mother who refuses to abandon her true self, for the portrait of a revolting child that questions an utterly conservative society,
for the visually exquisite style that contrasts with a world plunged in prejudice and moral coercion, the Stockholm Impact Award goes to Anna Jadowska for Wild Roses, a metaphor for human resilience.

Thank you so much for this award, I'm very honored. A special thanks to the Stockholm International Film Festival, the festival director, organizers, the city, of Stockholm and members of the jury. I had a long and difficult journey with this movie and to receive this award means a lot to me since it will give me the opportunity to do another film, says winning director Anna Jadowska.

Director Anna Jadowska presents a powerful story about a woman facing the difficulties of following her own desires in a small, conservative and gossip-filled village. With striking forest imagery that beautifully captures light drizzling through branches, the film is an exceptional portrayal of a woman and her environment. While examining the plights of women in a conservative society, however, Wild Roses is also a touching depiction of the relationship between mother and daughter.

The other nominated movies and directors were:

·         Cardinals av Grayson Moore & Aidan Shipley 

·         The Last Verse av Ying-Ting Tseng 

·         My Pure Land av Sarman Masud 

·         Searing Summer av Ebrahim Irajzad 

Stockholm Impact Award at Kulturhuset

This year the award ceremony for the Stockholm Impact Award was celebrated with a day dedicated to the prize at Kulturhuset, this wednesday 15th of November. Culture commissioner Roger Mogert was given the honour to hand over the award to the winning director Anna Jadowska.

The section Stockholm Impact Award is a collaboration between the Stockholm International Film Festival and the City of Stockholm with the purpose to highlight the possibility of film to create change and debate through the depiction of contemporary subjects. The prize amount of one million SEK will help the winner in the development of new film projects.

Last year the director Wayne Roberts (USA) won the award for Katie Says Goodbye.

2015 the director Leena Yadav (India) won the award for Parched
