was honoured with the inaugural CEEOL Award for Best Documentary Film, endowed by the Central and Eastern European Online Library with €4,000 in prize money. The documentary was shot on the Ukrainian-Russian front line and focuses on a 14-year-old girl who lives her daily life among the horrors of war. The jury stated that the film is “a tribute to the young people living in the ruins of our world”. Boney Piles also received the FIPRESCI Prize, as the jury found it to be “convincing on all levels: artistic, cinematic, human, personal and political”. The same award in the fiction-feature category went to Pilgrims [+lire aussi :
