JURY STATEMENT // Prize for the best contribution to the NRW Competition 59. INTERNATIONAL SHORTFILM FESTIVAL OBERHAUSEN 2013
Memories do not follow a chronological order – nor does Britta Wandaogo’s film. Her 12-year-old daughter Kaddi thinks about the meaning of life and the role she plays in her German and African families. The filmmaker finds material in her archive which makes long-forgotten qualities and strengths visible to Kaddi. This very personal, almost intimate dialogue between the mother’s images and the daughters’s words shows how memories can be cultivated to make the here and now more comprehensible.
