Don’t want to start arguing that this or that documentary film could also have been nominated – the five that made it are all very good films, congratulations. The winner will be announced December 15 at the ceremony in Sevilla. Among these – four of them have been reviewed on this site:
Bernadett Tuza-Ritter: A Woman Captured
Talal Derki: Of Fathers and Sons
Simon Lereng Wilmont: The Distant Barking of Dogs
Jane Magnusson: Bergman – A Year in a Life
Almudena Carracedo, Robert Bahar: The Silence of Others
As festival programmer happy to say that the films of Talal Derki and Simon Lereng Wilmont were screened at DocsBarcelona . “A Woman Captured” was wanted but got a no from the distributor and the Spanish was at other festivals. Wilmont won the first prize.
At Magnificent7 in Belgrade (seven films, seven days, a huge audience) Wilmont showed his film for the always interested Serbian audience.
