Jury Statement:

"Still Born asks the viewer, when does life begin? Heartfelt in its first person point of view, it artfully carries the viewer through a beautifully crafted emotional and touching journey."


Best Swedish Film 2014,

Uppsala Short Film Festival


The jury citation read:

"För en vackert animerad dokumentär om ett svårt beslut, förlust och längtan. Med ett lågmält och ömsint handlag utforskas livets bräcklighet och mörka passager, i en mästerlig film som är både poetisk och brutal."


Tempo New Doc


The jury citation read:

"With a beautiful and excellent handicraft the director tells with simplicity about one of the most difficult choices in life. A very personal story filled with pain, anger and powerlessness, that hits us so hard that we stop breathing. The director has managed to create a poetic film without compromising. "


Nordisk Panorama, Honorary Mention


"The Jury decided to award a special mention to a film that surpasses the established conventions of filmmaking by mixing documentary and animation. The film courageously deals with a heavy topic, not often addressed, in a modest and honest way."
