“Retouch” wins Silver Dragon at Krakow Film Festival

Date: 7 June 2017


“Retouch” by Iranian director Kaveh Mazaheri won the Silver Dragon for best short at the 57th Krakow Film Festival, the organizers announced on Sunday 4 June 2017. 

The film also received the Don Quixote Award, which is presented in selected festivals by the International Federation of Film Societies.

“Retouch” is about Maryam whose husband has an accident at home and, rather than saving him, she stops helping and watches him die.

The Silver Dragon for the best documentary film went to “The Origin of Trouble” by Tessa Louise Pope from the Netherlands and “Strange Case” by Zbigniew Czapla from Poland was picked as best animated film.

Earlier in April, “Retouch” won the Best Narrative Short at the 16th Tribeca Film Festival in New York City.

As one of Europe’s oldest events dedicated to documentary, animation and short film, the 57th edition of the Krakow Film Festival was held in the Polish city of Krakow from May 28 to June 4.
