“The lead actress Arta Muçaj in “Home Sweet Home” showed the true depth of character that touched me deeply by conveying to the audience the pain of losing her husband in the war initially and then losing him a second time due to financial circumstances that she had to endure. It is given in honor of an actress who has delivered an outstanding performance in a leading role,” said Enkelejd Mezini, co-host and moderator of New York Albanian Film Week.
“Home Sweet Home, which won the Best Picture Award, told a somber tale of a man returning home after being presumed dead only to find that his coming back to life might mean the death of his family’s future. It truly moved me, gave me a deeper understanding of the Albanian people. And saw its lead Actor and Actress walk off with best Actor and Actress awards,” said Jamal Hodge, Jury Member of New York Albanian Film Week.
