About the Jury Special Mention - Newsreel 80 - Metka, Meki directed by Nika Autor:
“Film about the “gastarbaiters,” workers who after the second world war were moving from Slovenia to the countries of Northern Europe in search of a better life. In an innovative, personal way shows that Slovenians are a nation of migrants. With the recipes for diverse ethnic dishes as the centre of the story, the film reveals that mixing diverse cultures is the most common aspect of human life.”
