Drama Nominates Terry Gilliam’s Short

The European Film Academy (EFA) and the International Short Film Festival in Drama congratulate the

Drama Short Film Nominee for the European Film Awards 2011
THE WHOLLY FAMILY
by Terry Gilliam
Italy, 20 min., fiction

The film is now nominated for the award European Film Academy Short Film 2011. It was selected by the festival’s international jury, chaired by Greek film critic Yiannis Bakogiannopoulos and composed of Patrice Carré, filmmaker & critic (France), Goran Radovonovic, writer & director (Serbia), Tayfun Pirselimoğlu, writer & director (Turkey), and Thomas Stenderup, producer & director (Denmark).

In the film, an American couple is on a holiday in Naples with their son Jake. During a tour of the city, the couple is constantly arguing because of the caprices of the child and does not realize having lost their son. Jake stopped at a stall, attracted by the carved shapes of Pulcinella… holy images, cribs, horns… strange characters who will accompany Jake on a dreamlike journey between reality and imagination throughout the most hidden places and symbols of Naples.

The short film initiative is organised by the European Film Academy in co-operation with a series of film festivals throughout Europe. At each of these festivals, an independent jury presents one of the European short films in competition with a nomination in the short film category of the European Film Awards.

This was this year’s final nomination, the list of nominated short films is now complete. The nominees will next be presented to the over 2,500 members of the European Film Academy and it is they who will elect the overall winner: the European Film Academy Short Film 2011 which will be presented at the 24th European Film Awards Ceremony on 3 December in Berlin.
