WORLD PREMIERE : IDFA 2011 Amsterdam (Official Competition)

GRAND PRIZE at „One World“ Human Rights Film Festival Brussels, Belgium

From the statement of the jury, consisting, among others, of members of the organization „Human Rights without Borders“ and „Amnesty International“:
"While the film does not give any answers, it poses a lot of questions about those circumstances that lead to illegal immigration, personal decision-making and institutional responsibilities."
According to the jury, the decision for "Mama Illegal" was also made in order to "bring the complexity of illegal migration to European decision makers."

Amnesty International is currently planning a screening of the film at the European Parliament.
