Krzysztof Kieślowski ScripTeast Award / Special Mention “The award goes to a strikingly original screenplay that confronts themes of spirituality, loyalty, and family dynamics in an ancient setting while relating an exotic and thought-provoking personal conflict set against the clash between early Christianity and paganism. The Advisory Board is confident that the strong dramatic potential of this engrossing screenplay will result in an excellent quality film with an international audience.”ScripTeast Artistic Board Cannes, May 22nd, 2013
