has now cast a spell over the jury for the Berlinale Documentary Award as well. Impressed by her portrayal of the communities in the Parisian suburbs, connected by the RER B commuter train, Albertina Carri, Orwa Nyrabia and Janna Ji Wonders chose the French production from among 16 documentary forms presented at the festival. They praised the director’s curiosity about the human condition and her thoughtful language, as well as arguing, “The feminist principle of writing autobiographically, even if it hurts, redoubled the bet in this film.” The prize money of €40,000 will be shared by Diop and producer Sophie Salbot. Totem Films handles the movie’s world sales.
