"Happy New Year" awarded as Best International Film at the "On the Road Film Festival"

"Happy New Year" by Désirée MarianiniLaura Cesarini and Michal Shanny has received the award as Best Feature Length Film in the International Competition of the recent "On the Road Film Festival", organised by Cine Detour in Rome.

“For the exceptional poetic sensitivity in the story of a wonderful anarchic soul and the resilience with which he does not wish to give up his own values in the face of the progress of a world which does not leave room to dream
For the capacity to deal with feelings which these days are too often demonized and easily dismissed as nostalgia, and give us, at the same time, tracks through time and shimmering poetry. For reinterpreting history, relearning to walk and live in the world, looking at himself in the mirror with honesty and candour, not without desperation and disillusionment. An account which carefully confronts the complex and often-covered theme, that of globalisation, through a strong, convincing and poetic story. A history of an individual from another time who fights against his own destruction”. 

These were the jury's motivations. The recent edition of the "On the Road Film Festival" took place in Rome, at the Cine Detour, from 29. November to 2. December. It is an independent film festival which screens independent medium and long feature length films, which cross genres and topics, from all over the world.
