“In a globalizing world, films can play an essential role in helping understand other cultures and mentalities. A camera can get extremely close to a human being, sometimes closer than a human eye and, at the same time, it is able to transmit what it sees to a large audience. Initiatives like the LUX Prize are important measures to bring our films to the attention of the people.”
