THE DEATHLESS WOMAN has been awarded Runner Up in the British Association of Film, Television and Screen Studies Practice Research Awards.
Jury statement: “Mortimer’s The Deathless Woman is to be commended for an ambitious and novel approach toward the documentary genre. Using a hybrid documentary format, the film combines oral history with fantasy to bring past and present in dialogue with each other. The film explores the marginalised histories of the Roma from World War 2 to the present day, investigating how landscapes maintain and hold the testimonies of atrocity, seeing the land as witness to trauma.”

We are thrilled THE DEATHLESS WOMAN has received the Special Jury Award from Ake Dikhea? Festival of Romani Film! Jury statement: “This film has significant value in highlighting the importance of commemoration and remembrance for Romani Holocaust victims but also effortlessly weaves together how the historical persecution of Romani people connects with the present day reality and rise in far right fascism across Europe particularly in the Hungarian context. It sends a clear call to action for wider society. A must watch.”
