Matías Lucchesi’s latest project is the crystal clear winner in Berlin…
The Argentine director’s full-length feature debut Ciencias naturales (Natural Sciences) has won the Crystal Bear for best film in the Generation Kplus sidebar for children’s films at the 64th Berlin International Film Festival.
Lucchesi not only directed the film, he also wrote the critically acclaimed screen play.
The coming-of-age story about a young girl who goes on the hunt for her absent father, took the top prize awarded by the Generation Kplus international jury, who called it “a captivating tale with wonderful acting and a clear vision. Strong in its simplicity, the film touched our hearts.”
The Generation Kplus children’s jury consisted of a group of young people who watched all the films in the section’s under-14 category.
Lucchesi’s previous credits include the short films Savannah and Distances.
