    HOTDOCS Special Jury Prize für “Before the Last Curtain Falls”

    Our latest production “Before the Last Curtain Falls” (director: Thomas Wallner) was awarded with the Special Jury Prize at HOTDOCS 2014.
    The Jury said: “A frank and tender look at a group of vibrant, mature artists in the autumn of their lives who bare their scars and joys with grace and humour. For a visually rich and deftly told tale of mortality, gender identity and the transformative power of performance, the jury awards the Special Jury Prize – Canadian Feature Documentary to Before the Last Curtain Falls.”

    “Before the Last Curtain Falls” tells the story of great love, bitter disappointments and self-doubts – but most of all of courage. The courage to take risks, try something new and be yourself – no matter what age. The film dives deeply into the exceptional and heart-warming stories of a group of transsexuals and drag queens in their sixties and seventies, who summon up their bravery to take to the stage one last time. For two years they have been touring in five continents, basking in the success of a spectacular show called “Gardenia”, directed by Alain Platel and Frank Van Laecke. Now, as the show comes to a close, the glamorous aging performers must leave the limelight and go home to the quiet lives they left behind.

    HOTDOCSS International Documentary Film Festival is one of the most important festivals for documentaries. It takes place every year in Toronto, Canada. This year the reached a new attendance record with over 192.000 visitors.
