Preisträger Dokumentarfilm: The Remains – Nach der Odyssee

Documentary Film, AT 2019, 90 min, OmdU

Two strands of narrative unfold alongside one another in The Remains: the one accompanies the survivors of a Syrian family that lost thirteen of its members in the sea on their escape. The other traces a picture of the helpers on Lesbos who are involved in the search for the missing, retrieving the drowned, or arranging a worthy burial for the unknown dead. Carefully, and with calm pictures, the film approaches death in the Mediterranean from many sides.
