Nanu Tudor awarded in ZagrebDox, Croatia
MY UNCLE TUDOR, by Olga Lucovnicova, won the main award of the Regional Competition at the 17th ZagrebDox – International Documentary Film Festival held between 13 and 20 of June in Croatia.
Jury statement: “Demonstrating how a short form with the help of strong film elements can talk about some of the biggest problems of our time, the talented and brave young filmmaker from Moldova sent a strong message to the world: sexual abuse of children is one of the biggest social problems of our time we have to face and which we have to solve.”

A starting point for the shocking self-documentary by Olga Lucovnicova is her homecoming to Moldova. The house is filled with memories, yet everyone around her seems to idealise the past which hides a trauma. The director does not point the lens of the camera at herself but uses it to observe her family. As she is younger than her relatives, she checks if anyone in her family will have the courage to recall something more than anecdotes and posed photos.
