16th Verzió International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival, Hungary - Hungarian Audience Award | 2019

Verzió International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival was founded by staff members of Blinken OSA Archive in 2004. Verzió Film Foundation was established in the following year to provide a stable background for the organization of the festival. The founders’ vision was to create a platform, till then missing from Hungary, for international documentary films with a focus on human rights. Many thought they were daydreamers, but in the last 16 years Verzió proved itself justified. Since 2004, festival programs were attended by as much as 111.000 visitors in Budapest, Pécs, Szeged and Kecskemét. 2019 showed a growth in countryside participation as two more cities, Debrecen and Kecskemét joined the Satellite Verzió program.

31. Triest Film Festival - Balcani Caucaso Transeuropa Award | 2020

About the Festival you can read above. About the Balcani Caucaso Transeuropa Award: OBC Transeuropa (Osservatorio Balcani e Caucaso Transeuropa), a think tank reporting on the socio-political and cultural developments on South-East Europe, Turkey and the Caucasus, assigns the award bearing the same name to the Best Documentary in competition. About the motivation that has led them to give their award to The Euphoria of Being: "Because it leads us to appreciate, in these times of disillusion and lack of perspectives, the force of existing as well as the present as an opportunity for redemption through beauty, tenderness and it even shows the values of fragility. Because the meeting between an elderly woman and a young professional dancer incarnates the beauty of the contact with the other, against the attempt by Nazi oppressors to annihilate the body and de-humanise the person. Because it manages to show the strength of the dialogue between different generations against the bitterness prevailing in our times. Because of the originality with which it deals with the theme of the elaboration of memory, showing us the difficulties of overcoming trauma, but also the possibility of living with it, maybe even sublimating it, enjoying the opportunities for happiness in one's existence. And it tells us the story of someone who was the victim of a system of death, transforming her into a protagonist of life through art."
