The names of the possible future winners of the 8th edition of the Doc Alliance Selection Award are already circulating across festivals and media. The luckiest of the nominated directors will receive the award on August 8, 2015 in Locarno. However, the important decision about the award winner is not brought by luck but rather by the jury comprised of seven leading European film critics. We are introducing the first one of them, Portuguese representative of Público Daily Jorge Mourinha!

Sorry, this film is no longer available.
In the small town of Pruchnik, near the remote Bieszczady Mountains in the south-eastern part of Poland, villagers gather every year on Good Friday to "punish" Judas for his betrayal of Jesus. The film explores the thin line between pagan and Christian rites and raises the timely question to what extent anti-semitism finds loopholes in the Roman Catholic tradition.
