Bruno Ribeiro’s film „Manhã de Domingo“ (Sunday Morning) received the Silver 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:
„In seemingly unrelated vignettes, the film moves from the anxiety of a musical performance to the experience of coming to terms with loss. Drama comes from subtle moments experienced by the protagonist, both in reality and in her imaginary reminiscences. With an extraordinary control over the cinematic image, Bruno Ribeiro paints a portrait of an artist who faces loss while struggling between fear and the desire to succeed.“
