Balcony by Toby Fell-Holden (UK)

The jury praised the art of the filmmaker to interconnect in a subtle way delicate themes like sexism, discrimination and xenophobia. Balcony tells the story of Tina who is so obsessed with the Afghan girl Dana she starts projecting her own feelings onto her with fatal consequences. This is a small masterpiece that crawls under your skin, that makes you speechless.
