DOK Leipzig winners have been announced to night. For this filmkommentaren correspondent it was a surprise (see post below) that the Swedish ”Colombianos” by Tora Mårtens got the first prize, the Golden Dove, whereas the Silver Dove to Ilian Metev for ”Sofia’s Last Ambulance” was an expected winner, as well as the honorary mention to the Chinese ”Cloudy Mountains” by Zhu Yu by the jury of the main competition.
Bravo also to the fine and warm ”Pablo’s Winter” (photo) by Chico Pereira, who received an honorary mention in the Talent category – and the award for the best film about the subject Work.
The MDR (the local broadcaster) Prize went to Helena Trestikova for her ”Private Universe”.
The many awards, and the motivations, at the DOK Leipzig are listed on the website below.
