Crulic - Drumul spre dincolo , Poland, Romania, 2011, 69 min, 35 mm, DCP, Digi Beta, HD, Animated, Drama doc, Human Rights, Social Issues
The animated documentary feature "Crulic - The Path to Beyond" tells the story of Crulic, a 33-year-old Romanian who died in a Polish prison while on a hunger strike. The story is told from the point of view of Crulic, in the present tense, after his death. A strong visual style, the result of beautifully blending hand-drawn collage, stop-motion and cut-cut animation techniques, create a striking, surprisingly integrated and memorable film.

The award in the category founded by five associated film festivals (Visions du Réel, Dok Leipzig, Planete Doc Review Warsaw, IDFF Jihlava and CPH:DOX) eventually landed in the hands of the director Eva Mulvad for The Good Life, winner among the five nominees.
THE GOOD LIFE
Director: Eva Mulvad
Denmark, 2010, 87 min
Two women, a mother and daughter, who live on Portugal’s southern coast. They have had a happy existence, never having to work a day in their lives.
But now the days of prosperity are over and they must deal with all of life’s material difficulties to survive. After years of dreaming, their nightmare has begun. A human comedy with brilliant dialogues befitting a likeable and
refined documentary sitcom.
