Golden Bear 2022 for „Trap“

Anastasia Veber’s film „Trap“ received the Golden Bear for Best Short Film at the 72nd Berlin International Film Festival.

The International Short Film Jury 2022, consisting of Italian artist Rosa Barba, Indian filmmaker Payal Kapadia and film & media art curator Reinhard W. Wolf, released the following statement about their decision:

„Through a masterfully crafted montage, fragments of the lives of young people, seemingly stuck in a controlling and oppressive society emerge. The carefully and minimally constructed narrative is used to draw us cinematically into a feeling of both ecstasy, resistance and hopelessness all at once. The forceful last scene puts us in a vortex of energy, leaving us no choice but to become a part of this world, by transporting us to an empowering communal feeling through the camera’s eye – produced by desires to imagine, trust and resist together.“
