Zurich Film Award 2018

MIDNIGHT RUNNER wins the Zurich Film Award 2018.

«The special and quite disturbing power of the film consists in the fact that instead of simple attempts at explanation or moral judgements, a cautious and yet unsparing approach is made to the contradictions and mental abysses of a young athlete who, completely surprisingly to his close ones, becomes a serial offender.»

Here the whole statement of the jury.

"The director Hannes Baumgartner irritates us with this pulsating shot and edited, disturbing drama of a traumatised young men, hauntingly played by the outstanding actor Max Hubacher and a great ensemble.“
