We look forward to the sequel and the completion of the film. "

The jury also made special mention of Viv Li's The Two Mountains Weighing Down My Chest project. "For his unique, fresh, funny, but at the same time deep and warm look, which opens a door to" true "China… and even further."

The words of the committee about the award and the person who inspired it were moving: "We are honored to participate in the award given in memory of Dimitris Eipidis, one of the most beloved members of our film community. He was a true man of cinema, who loved, took under his protection, brought to the fore and supported directors from all over the world. But more than anything else, he was the founder of the Thessaloniki Documentary Festival, thus being the "father" of modern Greek documentary. ".
