The Israeli filmmaker Amichai Greenberg tells Yoel, a historian of the Orthodox Jewish Holocaust memorial site. For many years he has been studying a season in Lendsdorf, at the end of WWII.
The public award "Ballon" goes to Germany's Michael Bully Herbig. In 1979, in the midst of the cold war, two ordinary East German families dreamed of going westward. They plan to build a balloon and fly across the border. An incredible story inspired by a real story.
In the category "Non-documentary", the professional jury award is translated by the Swiss director, "The Man we loved most," Danielle Jaeggi. The documentary retreats the fate of thousands of entrepreneurs who believe in the communist idealization with the portrait of his father and his best friend.
