Family Love - my Grandpa, National Socialism and me received the award for "Best Director" in the DocSchool section at the Astra Film Festival in Sibiu, Romania.
The Jury wrote: "For an essay film that bravely explores an uncomfortable personal history and the path to uncovering it with both vulnerability and sincerity, as well as with great intellectual and narrative skill, the award for best director of the Astra DocSchool competition goes to 'Family Love', by Eric Esser."
I am tremendously pleased and touched by this honor. I would like to add that this award somehow goes to the whole team - because it is a team effort. 🙂
