The 'BROTHERHOOD' by Francesco Montagner won Pardo d´oro at Locarno Film Festival
The 'BROTHERHOOD' by our graduate from the Department of Documentary Film Francesco Montagner won Pardo d´oro at Locarno Film Festival, the main prize for the best film of the Concorso Cineasti del presente competition, which focuses on the first and second films of promising filmmakers.
In the film, the Italian director and our graduate sets out for the Bosnian mountains and follows the fate of three teenage sons of a radical Salafist preacher who is convicted of terrorism. The three protagonists are thus faced with the decision of whether to continue on their father's path and join the "holy war", emigrate to Western Europe or go in a completely different direction.
