"Egg" by Martina Scarpelli (IT)
The jury said:
"The winner of the talent award is an extraordinary portrait of the mind. The film is told with surprising insight, where every small detail becomes a grand plot of suspense. A psychological thriller played out inside a mind where no one can hear you scream.
The film speaks to the viewer very openly. The task at hand is rather simple, but to some people even the simple becomes an enormous, excruciating task. The raw lines and the precise use of shapes serves the core of the story. Perfect shape represents everything that girl despise. Through all components of visual and sound narration we can almost feel taste and smell by ourselves – the difficulty to swallow, the heaviness in the stomach.
Talent award goes to Martina Scarpelli for the film "Egg"."
