Jury Quote

Sixty Seconds tells us a real and painful story of recovering from a traumatic injury: in an accident during a skydive, Tyler Turner became a bilateral amputee.

The film shows failure and progress, darkness and light. It depicts Tyler’s new reality in a very honest way. It walks us through his physical and mental suffering, follows the struggle to accept his new identity, to regain personal independence and to find again passion and purpose in life.

The debutante director Lara Shea proved a big talent and great intuition on how to translate the compassion and understanding she had for Tyler into a subtle, moving, universal and visually compelling film.

— Kasia Biernacka
