The Jury explained:
“The IDFA Award for Best Student Documentary goes to an utterly tender documentary about human persistence. A young director decides to make a film about one of the most agonizing historical practices of our world. In this genuine and soft-spoken exploration into unknown territory, there’s the flow that begins when women tell their stories, the healing that happens when she listens to her body in pain and in pleasure; and the magic that changes worlds when women decide to take back what was taken from them: in this case, their right to experience bodily pleasure. May we all tap into and spread the courage Beryl Magoko had while In Search!“
