This year’s European Film Awards (EFAs) are presented for the first time as a series of virtual events. Tonight’s “EFAs at Eight” were moderated by EFA President Wim Wenders and EFA Director Marion Döring and saw the announcement of the Excellence Awards winners 2020. A special eight-member jury had convened online and decided on the winners in the categories European Cinematography, Editing, Production Design, Costume Design, Make-up & Hair, Original Score, Sound, and Visual Effects. They based their decisions on the EFA Feature Film Selection 2020 and individual recommendations from the selection committee for the EFA Documentary Selection.

In the movie, we accompany Higino and Rosa more than three decades - the aging of the characters is fluid, impressive and highly believable. Not once does it interrupt your viewing experience and you really feel time passing in the narrow space.
