Small Body wins the 2018 edition of When East Meets West
The Italian project Small Body is the winner of the eighth edition of When East Meets West. The project directed by Laura Samani and produced by Nadia Trevisan (Nefertiti Film) is a rough fairy-tale about Agata and her dangerous journey to bring her stillborn baby back to life, just enough time for one breath. The international WEMW jury consisting of Benjamin Illos (Quinzaine des Réalisateurs), Petri Kemppinen (Nordisk Film & TV Fond), Riina Sildos (Amrion) and Mila Turajlic (Dribbling Pictures) honoured Small Body with the Film Centre Serbia Development Award (3.000 EUR cash prize) as the best of the 21 projects in competition.
Small Body won also RE-ACT co-development funding scheme. Nefertiti Film is the protagonist of Re-Act for two consecutive years: last edition was won by Alberto Fasulo with Menocchio.
