This years's Edith prize, for best editing of a documentary film 2018, is awarded to Charlotte Landelius for Mantaray Film's documentary "Silvana".
The jury's motivation: "The editor demonstrates great musicality and has in an impressive way woven song lyrics, documentary scenes and home videos for emotion that vibrates. The result will be both near and grand."
Michael and his father, the old Lord Chamberlain Soren Haslund-Christensen, are in the attic to find hidden treasures from the past. Grandfather Henning was a famous explorer and heritage collector among Mongolian tribes and Michael has heard rumours that Henning lived a secret double life as a British agent and gunrunner. Now he wants to find out if it's true. He would also like to have time with his father, and time is scarce. He has lured his father on adventure - as they have been so many times earlier in their lives - on a journey in the grandfather's footsteps back in time to a story of love and despair and a magnificent spy plot that involves both grandfather Henning and mighty empires struggle for world domination.
