21 May 2012

Dutch documentary 900 DAYS, directed by Jessica Gorter, received a Special Mention at the 9th Planete+ Doc Film Festival in Warschau, Poland. The film is produced by Zeppers Film, in co-production with Dutch broadcaster IKON.

Jury Comments: "An impressive confrontation of the heroic myth created by authorities for political purposes with intimate memories of victims – all presented in intense and straight to the point way."

Previously the film was awarded with the Dioraphte IDFA Award for Best Dutch Documentary at the Amsterdam International Documentary Film Festival (IDFA) 2011, the Special Jury Prize for Long Documentary at the ArtdokFest in Moskou and the Prix Interreligieux and Special Mention of the Grand Prix at the Nyon Visions du Réel Film Festival.

900 DAYS is a documentary about the Blockade of Leningrad during World War II. The film shows an impressive picture of the struggle of the survivors, whose personal memories are sometimes overshadowed by the heroic myth held up by the authorities. the horrific truth about which they were forbidden to talk about for all these years.
