Lars Kraume

Statement of the School Jury: “From beginning to end, we were captivated by action and suspense of the story. The direction and the actors’ performances won us over and really helped us to identify with the characters. We really liked the fact we felt empathy throughout the film. We also enjoyed the other films in the selection but, in our eyes, only THE SILENT REVOLUTION (DAS SCHWEIGENDE KLASSENZIMMER) managed to completely convince us. The winner of the 2019 School Jury Award is, therefore, THE SILENT REVOLUTION by Lars Kraume.”
