ニヨンで「宗教を超えた審査員賞」受賞! Inter-religious Jury Prize in Nyon!

ニヨン国際ドキュメンタリー映画祭(Visions du Reel)で、『精神』が、「宗教を超えた審査員賞」をいただきました。 カトリック、プロテスタント、ユダヤ、そしてムスリムの審査員が集まり、受賞作品を決定したそうです。




At Visions du Reel in Nyon, MENTAL just won the Inter-religious Jury Prize (Prix du jury interreligieux)! The jury was composed of Catholic, Protestant, Muslim, and Jewish members.

Here's the comment from the jury: The focus of this film set in Japan are people who have been diagnosed as mentally ill. They give us insight into their inner world and show us that there is no clear-cut dividing line between healthy and sick. The film conveys a respectful image of human integrity.

Since I studied religions at Tokyo University, this is all the more honorable and special for me... Thank you!!
