from the award notification:

1st Prize endowed with 2.000 Euro

 Second Chance Man (Tindersticks)

Christoph Girardet

Germany / France 2016, 4’20”

 Statement:

An un-nostalgic use of found footage, this film does not employ overused imagery yet still manages to be iconic. The video is subtle, beautiful and sympathetic to the song that it accompanies. This is a film that quietly demands repeat viewings – on our second watch we knew that Second Chance Man, which gives a second life to archive footage, heartily deserves first prize in this competition.”
