Deployments wins at Short Waves

9 April, 2019

The short film Deployments, by Stéphanie Lagarde (FR) and produced by Video Power (NL), has won the first prize in the International Competition category at the 2019 Short Waves festival in Poznan (Poland). Short Waves Festival’s 11th edition took place 19-24 March.

The Short Waves Festival jury states the films’ unique cinematic work which strikes with captivating imagery, creating a foreboding feeling and a sense of deconstructed masculinity.

In Deployments, Lagarde shows us the relation between symbolic and physical power. The film questions how states occupy terrain, both in air and on ground.

Last year, Deployments was already nominated for the New Masters (Talent Competition) – Documentary and Animated Film category at DokLeipzig.
  
Lagarde worked with Dutch producer Video Power to realise this project. An earlier successful VideoPower production includes Papieren Land (Marie van Vollenhoven and Shahib Sidow) which was nominated for the Young Eyes Film Awards at the 2018 International Leipzig Festival for Documentary and Animated Film.
