Taste Of Cement wins the Grand Prix for the best feature documentary of 18th at Mediteran Film Festival. Taste of Cement is directed by Ziad Kalthoum, and produced by Bidayyat and BASIS BERLIN Filmprodukytion in 2017.
The explanation by the jury for feature documentary competition composed of Vlatka Vorkapić, Jorge Tur Molto and Ademir Kenović was the following: “By precise and aesthetically brilliant use of camera, the film “Taste of Cement” brings the viewers closer to the Syrian construction workers who are building a skyscraper in Beirut while at the same time their own houses at home are being shelled. The narrator's voice, poetic and strong, is actually the voice of all of them, sort of a cry for justice, a cry for all the displaced and disempowered. „Taste of cement“ fascinates with its aesthetic range and, what is more important, it warns about the bitter taste of injustice”.
