‘Hackney Lullabies’ wins Berlin Campus award

Jury sings praises of Miyake's docu short

Hackney Lullabies,” a short docu by Japanese helmer Kyoko Miyake, won the Berlinale Talent Campus’ Berlin Today Award on Sunday.

Shot in the London neighborhood of Hackney, the short focuses on young immigrant mothers in the U.K. and how they convey a sense of home to their children through lullabies.

“With ‘Hackney Lullabies,’ Miyake offers a sensitive, funny, warmhearted and interesting contribution to the immigration debate in times of globalization,” the Berlin Today Award jury said in a statement. “The jury was crying and singing lullabies as they left the meeting.”

“Hackney Lullabies” was produced by Katrin Springer and Volker Ullrich of Berlin-based Filmkantine.

This year’s educational Talent Campus kicked off on Saturday to a packed house at the Hebbel am Ufer Theater with a screening of this year’s five nominated short films, one of which will be honored at next year’s Berlinale.

More than 150 international film experts and Berlinale guests are attending the Campus, including Harry Belafonte, Wim Wenders, Istvan Szabo, Ralph Fiennes, Shekhar Kapur and German director Andres Veiel, whose “If Not Us, Who?” screens in competition.
