Laura Bispuri wins Haifa Film Fest
Laura Bispuri’s Daughter of Mine wins the Golden Anchor
Award at the 34st Haifa International
Film Festival, dedicated to cinema from the Balkans and the Mediterranean. The
jury was composed of French actress Laëtitia Eïdo, Israeli producer Claudia Levin,
and director Asaf Korman, who presented the prize with the following
motivation: “By means of a bitter and poetic naturalism, Daughter of Mine tells the superbly-written and wonderfully-acted
story of a young girl with two mothers. The film is a colorful portrait of
maternity without labels, a story in which all of the three protagonists are
concurrently mothers and daughters.”
