Last Friday, for the 19th time Swiss Films organization had their award ceremony where the favorite Köpek by Esen Isik won the top Quartz award and leading actress won top acting award, winning 2 of the 5 nominations it got.
Most interesting is that one of my favorite directors, Ursula Meier won a Quartz, this time for a short film! Really miss her outstanding and (very) disturbing feature films, hope she makes one soon.
