Lisbon, PT – March 3, 2022 – The Mental Health Rights Film Festival (MHRFF): The jury prize went to: Brother (Netherlands, 2021) directed by Lisanne Sweere; this is what the jury had to say to illustrate the reason for the Award:

The film addresses in an original and complex sensitive way the impact of mental illness on the life of a family and allows us to reflect and understand how suffering, guilt, and fear, but also love, can mark the day to day of those who live an experience such as this. The mastery of narrative and a well-crafted visual style make this film a work of great interest on the subject of mental health and human rights.
