The film 'Days of Madnes' by Damian Nenadić at the just finished Festival of Slovenian Film won an Vesna Award for Special Acheivements. Jury members Haidy KanclerMetod Pevec and Miloš Srdić awarded the film because without moralising, the film raises harrowing questions of how one responds to psychological distress; and how the system, the medical science, the pharmaceutical industry reacts. Thanks to well-thought-out yet only seeming absence of the author, what is left is an honest, brutally compelling document that leaves the viewer with an almost physical effect. 'Days of Madness' is produced by Restart in co-production with Slovenian Petra Pan Film.

Jury decision:

'Days of Madness' all but scares us by raising second thoughts whether mental illness is perhaps merely a combination of the infinite vulnerability of life, human powerlessness and evil demons that roam our midst. Without moralising, the film raises harrowing questions of how one responds to psychological distress; and how the system, the medical science, the pharmaceutical industry react. Thanks to well-thought-out yet only seeming absence of the author, what is left is an honest, brutally compelling document that leaves the viewer with an almost physical effect.
