The Oculus Studio Director of production Mike Doran gave a statement, “The real hero here is Colette herself, who has shared her story with integrity and strength,” “As we see in the film, resistance takes courage, but facing one’s past may take even more.

Allowing us to preserve this pilgrimage for future generations was a true act of bravery and trust.

We hope this award and the film’s reach means, as Colette says, that Jean-Pierre’s memory, as well as all of those who resisted, are no longer lost in the ‘Night and Fog’ of Dora.”

Not only that, but Foreign Language film also made a major step towards the golden lady where ‘Another Round’ a Danish film directed by the ‘Thomas Vinterberg starring a well-known actor exhibiting his true acting skills ‘Mads Mikkelsen.

This award surely got bigger importance for Denmark, that they even tweeted about it.

For the director, the moment got emotional while giving an acceptance speech when he dedicated the award to her late daughter who died a couple of years ago.

“We ended up making this movie for her, as her monument.” Further, he said, “This is a film about letting go of control in life as I lost control of my own,”

“This is beyond anything I could ever imagine,” he continued “Except this is something I’ve always imagined.”

These were the headline moments of the evening, but that’s not the end of the story there are other surprising wins and losses too.
