Sunday, 28.08.2022

Restart's short documentary "Babajanja" by Ante Zlatko Stolica won the Sliced ​​Onion Award in the short documentary competition at this year's edition of the International Creative Documentary Film Festival Makedox, which took place in Skopje from August 18th to 25th. "The Sliced​​Onion Award for the Short Dox section goes to a film that impressed us with its stunning visuals and original way of mixing childhood ghosts with harsh reality. By introducing fictional elements into the documentary narrative, the child's perspective is slowly replaced by the investigation of an adult trying to find the woman who haunted him in dreams, and who was turned into a monster by her fellow villagers because of her difference" reads the explanation of the jury of the 13th Makedox (Marion Czarny, Angeliki Vergou i Suzanne Nodale). The cinematographer of the film is Katarina Zlatec, the editor Iva IvanHrvoje Nikšić was in charge of the sound design, produced by Tibor Keser and Vanja Jambrović.
