Evi Romen’s WHY NOT YOU is the Zurich Golden Eye Award winner 2020


Evi Romen’s directorial debut Why Not You wins the Golden Eye Award of the Focus Competition of the 16th ZURICH Film Festival.

"With its variety of themes Why Not You takes a risk that the main actor Thomas Prenn knows how to master at every point. We follow him through the most dramatic twists and turns that confront us with his outsider role and our own prejudices. Director Evi Romen convinced us with the choice and mise-en-scène of her cast and the way she handles the narrative rhythm and visuality. We are curious about her future work!"

… stated the Focus Competition jury –  Angelina Maccarone, Edna Epelbaum, Sabine Moser, Francesco Rizzi and Dan Wechsler.

Why Not You starring Thomas Prenn, Noah Saavedra was produced by AMOUR FOU Vienna and Take Five (BE).
