A film by Sergiy Loznytsya won a Golden Dove - the main prize of 59th Leipzig international festival of documentaries and animated films
Austerlitz tells about modern perception of concentration camps. They are turned into museums, and visitors make selfies, giggle and walk around curiously without a thought about the thousands of people, killed there.
Sergiy Loznytsya tries to understand, where this ignorance comes from and what could be done to make people think and perceive.
The film was premiered at Venice Film Festival on September 7, 2016. Austerlitz will come on screens on December 15.
