SOLDATE JEANNETTE wins Hivos Tiger Award 2013


Successful European Film Conspiracy: Shortly after its world premiere at the Sundance festival, Daniel Hoesl’s feature debut SOLDATE JEANNETTE was awarded the Hivos Tiger Award 2013.

Sixteen first or second films competed in the 2013 Hivos Tiger Awards Competition. Daniel Hoesl’s feature début SOLDATE JEANNETTE is one of the three winners of this year’s Hivos Tiger Award 2013 together with Mira Fornay’s MY DOG KILLER (Slovakia, Czech Republic) and FAT SHAKER by Mohammad Shirvani )Iran)

The jury’s statement on SOLDATE JEANNETTE:
The breaking out of two women is realized with strong imagery and visual power. Each shot is minimal but gives a high construction of forms and shapes; a very formalistic approach.’

Fanni has had enough of money and leaves to buy a tent. Anna has had enough of pigs and leaves the farmer - one needle in the hay. In the new game Fanni rolls the dice while Anna does not think twice - she knocks down all the pins. Together they raise their voice and shape one mutual tune. Differences attract each other, and jolly they move on - together on their distinct journeys, where their dreams are set - towards a new found liberty.
