The price for the best documentary in the german competition at DOK.fest Munich 2017 as well as the dokKa-grant of the documentary festival Karlsruhe and the award “Un ponte tra le culture“ of the Sole Luna Doc Filmfestival go to “Brother Jakob“!
From the jury statement DOK.fest Munich:
“In unpretentious and highly emotional images, the film recounts Jakob’s need for spirituality and the power and the relentlessness of religion and family. We are shown the competition between the two brothers, that dialogue is better than exclusion, that understanding must always come before judgement and that a dominant culture that holds good for everyone is not easy to create.”
