The jury was appointed by the Norwegian Film Critics’ Society, and included Guri Kulås from Klassekampen, Terje Eidsvåg from Adresseavisen and Britt Aksnes from Dag og Tid. Their motivation stated that the film “is thematically and visually daring, with a finely tuned balance between the serious and the comedic. Rarely have we seen such a unique and meaningful allegory over subjects such as alienation, integration and identity. And never have we seen a superior modernised version of Nordic folklore.” Border, the tale of an eccentric customs officer with a supernatural pedigree, premiered in the Un Certain Regard section of this year’s Cannes, where it also snagged the top UCR Award. 

The Audience Award, presented by an audience jury appointed by TV Haugaland, also went to a Cannes entry, Capernaum [+lire aussi :
