Special Mention at WTFF
The jury of the Working Title Film Festival (Italy) awarded Mitten a Special Mention with the following words: “This observational documentary film portrays the artistic/cultural work, that is often impalpable, without any artifice; the natural rhythm of the action allows to gradually enter into the heart of the preparatory effort. The camera often turns to the gesture of the construction of the body, regardless of the piece itself; you do not enter the intimacy of the characters but can perceive their self-denial/dedication. The photography is remarkable.”
In the aftermath of the festival the Italian website Mediacritica also published a beautiful text by Erasmo De Meo about the film.
