"WEIGHTLIFTER" HAS A CHANCE TO WIN THE EUROPEAN FILM AWARD
The film by Dmytro Sukholytkyy-Sobchuk was chosen by the Jury of the International Short Film Festival in Drama, Greece as the film which will get a chance to be nominated for the European Film Award in the Best Short Film category.
Thanks to "the strong directing and the power of the protagonist’s situation in the universe of Ukrainian weightlifting," which is how the jury of the competition justified the film's award, "Weightlifter" is included among 24 films from which five nominated films will be selected.
At first glance, "Weightlifter" is a story about the true cost of victory. Tragic news interrupts Petro's preparations for an important weightlifting competition. The film was produced in 2019 by the Munk Studio.
