Jury statement: "Golden Voices" is a universal, wholly original and heartwarming story. It’s touching with funny elements. The film benefits of moving performances by the two lead actors, especially the female lead Maria Belkin.
We think this film has genuine appeal for international audiences and could travel to festivals.
