International Award

 
The INTERNATIONAL AWARD at SHEFFIELD Doc/Fest goes to:

EARTH by Nikolaus Geyrhalter:

“In a remarkable way, the sheer scale and ambition of this project is matched by its humility towards its subject and subjects. We were moved by the film’s palpable trust in its audience while simultaneously denouncing all of our hand in the scarred (mother) earth we leave behind to future people.”
(statement of the jury)

Jury Award


THE BORDER FENCE
by Nikolaus Geyrhalter

received the Jury Prize at the Trento Film Festival
 
"It is a documentary offering an accurate examination of the present day; a forum comparing opinions, that gives a voice to citizens, observing them at work, constructing a possible people and listening to a discordant choir of words and impressions on the subject of migrants. It is a major political film, complex and contradictory, in contrast to the simplistic political discourse broadcast by the media." (jury statement)
