Macedonian director wins Sundance short film award


'Would You Look At Her', a film written and directed by Goran Stolevski, won the award for best international short film at the 34th Sundance Film Festival in the United States.

The short movie vied alongside 17 films from all over the world in the festival's Shorts Program.

The film was picked by a three-member jury comprised of screenwriter, director and producer Sharine Davis, Shirley Manson, musician and frontman of the indie rock band Garbage, and the cartoonist Chris Ware. Presenting the award to Stolevski, Ware compared his writing style to that of Leo Tolstoy.

Would You Look At Her tells the story of a teenage girl Aneta, who is trying to solve family and school problems by engaging in an all-male religious ritual.
