This year’s 10th edition of the Prix Marulic festival, held in Hvar, Croatia from 6th to 12th May and organized by Croatian Radio, consisted of 39 radio-plays and documentary dramas by 31 production companies from 20 countries.

10th PRIX MARULI_ FESTIVAL, HVAR, CROATIA, 6.-12.05.2006.

 

THE OFFICIAL RESULTS

Members of the international Jury were:

David Swatling (Netherlands)
Li Xiaolei (China)
Aniko Varsanyl (Hungary)
Dimitriou Lydia (Greece)
Jean Claude Kuner (Germany)
Grace Yoon (Germany)
Chris Brookes (Canada)
Vedrana Vrhovnik (Croatia)

Presidents of the Jury were:

Alfred Koch
John Theocharis

According to the festival’s regulation Jury members couldn’t vote for the production of the production company they represent

The Jury decided as follows:

Drama Category, Prix Marulic 2006

In the Drama Category we had 24 entries from about 20 Broadcasting Organizations. The standard varied as usual, but on the whole it was impressive and with high production values. The results of the voting by the ten-strong jury were as follows, in ascending order:

 

3) The Second Drama Commendation was shared by two entries achieving over all the
same average of marks. It was awarded to “Journey to the Center of the Earth”,
entered by Mitteldeutscher Rundfunk, and to “Daphnis and Chloe”, entered by the
British Broadcasting Corporation.

The German play was a dramatization for radio of Jules Verne’s famous novel, and it
was directed by Leonhard Koppelmann. The dramaturge was Steffen Moratz. The
jury appreciated the powerful presentation of the dramatic descent into the bowels of
the earth, the dramatic suspense and the effective translation of the novel into a
convincing radio experience.

The British play was a dramatization of the pastoral romance by Longus (3rd c.); the ancient fable of two young, naïve and innocent lovers who, stage by stage, -and in the teeth of great obstacles-, allow their mutual love to flourish. Finally, love conquers all; they marry and discover for themselves the mechanics of full, penetrative and pleasurable love. This adaptation was written by Hattie Naylor and directed by Jeremy Mortimer. The jury especially valued the development of the old tale and the liveliness and the charm, the lightness and humor of the presentation.

2) The First Drama Commendation was given to “Ivan”, – an adaptation of a chapter
from “The Brothers Karamazov” by Dostoevski. It was a Bulgarian National Radio
entry. It was adapted for radio by Georgi Tenev, Assen Avramov and Ivan Dobchev
who also directed it. This was a very powerful piece of radio, not only in terms of
acting on a grand yet still convincing scale, but also in terms of bringing alive through
sound the horrors of the human conscience as it descends into the depths of personal
hell.

1) The Grand Prix Marulic 2006 for Drama was awarded to “The True and
Inspirational Life of St Nicholas” from the British Broadcasting Corporation,
written by David and Caroline Stafford, and directed by Marc Beeby. The play was
in the form of a knock-about version of the life of the 4th c. muscular miracle-worker
St.Nicholas, before a lively street audience. After his death, an established Saint, he is
persuaded, much against his will, to turn into the portly Santa Claus. The jury
appreciated the witty use of anachronism, the inventive, bold and drily humorous
account of the various episodes, as well as the acting, the overall presentation, and the
imaginative way in which the concept of Prix Marulic was interpreted and applied.

(John Theocharis)

Documentary Category, Prix Marulic 2006

Prix Marulic, Special Commendation

3) The Second Commendation was awarded to “Running with Atalanta”, entered
by Radio Netherlands and directed by David Swatling.

A documentary that cleverly and rather unexpectedly combines human trafficking, the modern equivalent of slave trading, with a tale from Ovid’s “Metamorphoses”. Against the background of the virgin huntress Atalanta who could outrun any man, an impressive story unfolds, about a Latvian woman who is forced into the Dutch sex industry and finally manages to escape.

2) The First Commendation was given to “Roots”. It was a Finnish Broadcasting
Company, YLE entry. Authors: Aune Waronen and Pentti Mannikko.

A program that closely observes eight country housewives who come together to bake sourdough bread and pass on the art of baking to a newcomer. What begins like just another story about preserving roots and tradition develops slowly into a meditation on tradition, gender roles, sourdough bread and Finnish identity. The jury was especially impressed by the outstanding quality of the recordings throughout ROOTS, including the sounds of bread-making and the womens’ voices.

1) Grand Prix Marulic 2006 is equally shared by:

“Running the Goat”, by Chris Brookes, Canada (Battery Radio)

An entertaining, multi-layered and almost philosophical documentary about a traditional “set dance in 8 figures,” peculiar to a tiny port on the island of Newfoundland. This vivid, well-paced and perfectly mixed documentary subliminally discusses the loss of tradition and its hope for survival through the promotion of a national tourist industry. To this end, Running The Goat is not only a documentary about a dance, but an intelligent treaty about cultural change

“Extraordinary. Stille. Ce soir.” by Jean-Claude Kuner, Andrea Maggraff, Germany (DR Kultur/SWR/WDR)

A program about a man who refused to give interviews and even forbade the recording of his voice, Samuel Beckett. By it’s playful and quiet approach combining text and interviews with actors, the writer’s editor and his nephew, this documentary gives listeners the impression that they’re practically hearing Beckett’s voice. Residing somewhere between a radio play and a feature, the program carefully probes into Beckett’s life and work through his admiration of Dante, exploring one of his inspirational wellsprings, “The Divine Comedy.” The jury was particularly attracted to the skillfull and intelligent design of translations throughout the story.

Soweto 1976: An Audio History
This week marks the 30th anniversary of the Soweto Uprising in South Africa. For decades, the whites-only government of South Africa had brutally enforced a policy of racial segregation known as Apartheid, and just as ruthlessly crushed any opposition. By the 1970’s, an entire generation of anti-apartheid fighters had been silenced. Many were killed. Others, like Nelson Mandela, were in prison or in exile.

But on June 16th 1976, a group of school children in the black township of Soweto decided to hold a protest. At the time, nobody thought their action would change the course of a nation.

Produced by Joe Richman and Ben Shapiro.
Broadcast on NPR’s All Things Considered Friday June 16th, 4:30 ET
