Yael Bartana wins prizes at Oberhausen Short Film Festival

Yael Bartana's "Mur I Wieza" has been awarded the Principal Prize by the International Jury and has been awarded the Prize of the Ecumenical Jury. The international Jury statement about Mur I Wieza:

A surprising approach that exposes and satirises the strategies and style of propaganda films; an engaging, expectation-twisting and mind-opening experience for the viewer, and a masterclass in cultural studies. For providing a heterodoxical point of view on a highly-charged political issue and exposing its extreme complexity in a critical, yet potentially conciliatory way.
