UP-AND-COMING director Jaro Vojtek received the One World Award in the Slovak Documentary category for his latest film Malá Domov (Back Passing).

The film tells the story of Dávid, a Roma boy who aspires to play in an international football tournament as a member of a mixed team of Roma and non-Roma boys.

This is the award’s inaugural year. It is part of the 9th One World International Film Festival, which screens documentaries related to human rights issues. The festival took place in Bratislava from November 12 to 16. It will tour other Slovak towns until April.
