Best Nordic Film

WINNER

Sameblod: Amanda Kernell
"The award goes to a film that has a universal theme told through a painfully topical portrait of a minority struggle. The journey of the main character, the hard choices and sacrifices she has to make are not only dramatically well founded, but also manage to unfold a gripping story about identity in a harsh historical context. An impressive first film with a powerful lead performance."
