Roland Ferge's diploma film produced by Budapest University of Applied Sciences (BKF) and CineWork Studio won Berlinale Special Mention.
"A vision in black-and-white. A girl’s face, then a boy’s, followed by another boy’s. Eight children stare motionlessly into the camera with a serious expression on their faces. Then one of them packs their suitcase, leaves the secluded farmhouse and sets off down the muddy path. The other kids are now also on their way, either on old bicycles or on foot. Each has a suitcase; one also has a cello and another is carrying two chickens in a box. Their journey is arduous, the roads are poor, there are steep steps to negotiate and the suitcases are heavy. Eight children on the move – their destination uncertain"
"An elegant and formal artistic vision that resonates meaning beyond the seams of the film. A visual poem!" – Generation Kplus International Jury verdict said. The members of the Jury were Christian Bellaj, Boudewijn Koole and Catriona McKenzie.
