Quote from Joni Cooper - jury member:
"Exquisite in both image and pace, this film opened our eyes to a tradition that has not been abandoned despite contemporary methods. It took us along step by step, so we could experience the wisdom being shared, listen to the sounds and silence, and appreciate the immense beauty along the way."
