Bassil'Ora written, produced and directed by Rebecca Basso got the prize "Best documentary" from the Young Jury at Rasnov Histories and Film Festival 2021.
“The jury of high school students from the Râșnov Histories and Film Festival, 13th edition, decided, with a majority of votes, to award the prize to the documentary Bassil’Ora, directed by Rebecca Basso.
In an edition that celebrates the heroes, the film is a hard, intense, tender and equally profound testimony of an unknown hero: the Italian Giuseppe Bassi, one of the few survivors of the Soviet deportation camps.
The film invites viewers to move from the microcosm of a personal story to the macrocosm of war in a broader sense, intertwining reality with fiction and coherently inserting animation elements, archive photos and pencil drawings made by the film's protagonist himself.
Story, emotion, originality - Bassil’Ora - the hero film for high school students.”
