Winner of Amnesty International Award

Back to the Square has won the “Amnesty International Award” at Doc Planete Review!

Jury of the competition for best film about human rights consisting of Draginja Nadaždin, Tadeusz Sobolewski and Mirosław Chojecki presented the AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL AWARD and €3000 in prize money to Petr Lom’s Back to the Square. “The film is an insightful look at Egypt a year after the revolution that began at Tahrir Square. A moving account of the topic seemingly well-known from the media, the film allows viewers to ponder 5 personal tragedies of its protagonists. What impressed us the most was the courage of these five people, who refuse to tolerate any further violence, lack of change and superficial promises of security service reforms. We were astounded by the film’s witty portrayal of the ongoing struggle for dignity and liberty for the heroes of the Egyptian revolution” – reads the jury’s verdict.
