„My love belongs to genre films, especially horror and science fiction.“ Also to be used as an environmental movie: Rubbish slithers through the streets, transforming into a skyscraping vengeful tower of rubbish exacting pure horror from the faces of those who brought this upon themselves.

Jury statement


The first prize of the Young Talents Competition goes to “The Hurl” by Samir Kawas. An effective fiction and a well-made film with a strong message that points out a major environmental problem, plastic waste and waste disposal. The greyish shade of the images works well for the story and the handmade craft is especially appealing and highly constructive. A short, fun film to watch and of perfect length.
