The jury noted, “Blurring the line between narrative and documentary, Linder’s All Cats Are Grey in the Dark simultaneously observes its main character — and its topic — with both empathy and absurdity. This unexpectedly touching, exceptionally composed, and tender tale of a man’s love for his cats (along with the best employed use of Alexa) surprised the jury with its observational filmmaking and memorable feline performances.”
born in St. Gallen, Switzerland, Lasse Linder directed the short films Psilocybin (15) and Bashkimi United (18). All Cats Are Grey in the Dark (19) is his latest film.
