Jury member Piotr Dumala singled out the Iranian film “Mr. Deer” because it is a film that takes place in the everyday circumstances of city life, in which the human wildness creates breathtaking horror.
The story of “Mr. Deer” is set in an unknown period of history in a ruined subway station that is similar to those found in modern European cities. People in this society have animal faces and have forgotten humanity.
The jury consisting of Jeanette Bonds, Sanja Borcic, Piotr Dumala, Robert Morgan and Pedro Rivero also handed the Grand Prix to “La Chute” by Boris Labbé from France.
The 28th Animafest Zagreb took place from June 4 to 9 at different locations across the city.
