our film The Queen of Silence wins Silver Horn Award!
The Queen of Silence just won THE SILVER HORN Award for Best Feature-length Documentary at 55 Kraków Film Festival!
From the jury’s verdict: “The issue of a minority within a minority was presented in such a refreshing and entertaining way, lending even more weight to its universal relevance. One could not remain indifferent to Denisa’s unwavering ambition to survive and her joy of life. Particular note should be made of the versatile camerawork and editing for a film we recommend especially to young audiences.”
THE QUEEN’s DoPs Aleksander Duraj and Armand Urbaniak also received the Polish Society of Cinematographers Award for the Best Cinematography. We’re happy and proud!

Our Film “The Queen of Silence” awarded in Prague!
One World International Human Rights Film Festival awarded The Queen of Silence for creative use of sound and music in a documentary film.
As jury’s statement reads: „The Queen of Silence provides a unique insight into the interior world and sense of sound of a girl with a severe hearing handicap. The jury particularly appreciated the fine balance achieved between the use of sound, music and silence. In this documentary, the role of sound is as important as the image, and at times even more important. The music used in the film subtly underscores the parallel worlds of the central character, Denisa, a dancer“.
Thank you One World! Thank you wonderful team! (photo: One World FF)
