I’m very happy to announce that the winner of our very first Audience Award is Johannes’ Nyholm’s Las Palmas. It received 20 votes out of a total of 60 completed ballots. Audiences laughed throughout this tale of a middle-aged tourist at a bar in the Canary Islands. The main character is played by the director’s one-year-old daughter Helmi, while the rest of the cast are marionettes. Nyholm assures me that his daughter, now three and a half, is perfectly normal. I suggested they take the $100 prize and go out for beers.
You can download and watch the entire film at the Las Palmas site.
