Jury Comment
This film arouses awareness of the neutrality of the media and the mobocracy. In a situation in which the media, colluded with the vested rights, narrows the public’s perspectives through a filter of hatred, the film is selected to be awarded as it raises questions about the attitudes of the media and the public.
