WIFF logoThe jury for the 2013 12th Annual Whitehead International Film Festival is pleased to announce its choice for the Whitehead Award. The jury has chosen a film that deals with a subject all too common in our contemporary world: the displacement of persons from their homeland for reasons of personal safety and security. Despite institutional safeguards to help such people as they attempt to settle in a new land, the obstacles are formidable: linguistic challenges, family strains, financial burdens. What are the resources for creative transformation in such a situation? Through the child in the film we experience the power of imagination and poetry, offering transcendence, hope, and promise. The jury gives the Whitehead Award to the Austrian film, “Your Beauty is Worth Nothing.”

The jury gives its honorable mention to a film taking us into the universal experience of grief. The journey within the film parallels the grieving process of pain, memory, and transition. In scenes of exceptional beauty, the film explores the courage to be open to new modes of human community despite and even because of one’s loss. Loves of the past continue to live and enliven the present, entering into time’s continuous flow. The jury honors Japan’s beautiful film, “Dearest.”

Audience Award for the 2013 Whitehead International Film Festival:

#1 “Dearest”
#2 “Almanya”

NEXT film festival and class: January 17-20, 2014

jeanynePeople who write about process theology can be eloquent and inspiring, or intellectual and demanding, but for sheer poetic beauty no one surpasses Catherine Keller. Catherine writes as a theologian, yes, but also as someone who could as easily have gotten an MFA in writing as an MDiv and PhD in theology.
