CONCORSO DOCUMENTARI


::: CINEMAMBIENTE - ASJA.BIZ PRIZE:::


THE REAL DIRT ON FARMER JOHN by Taggart Siegel (USA 2005).

The jury of the international documentary section of Cinemambiente 2006 first of all congratulates the organizers on the high quality of the nine films selected, which made our job very difficult.
After a lively and wide-ranging discussion, we decided to award the prize to “The Real Dirt on Farmer John” by Taggart Siegel , a film full of humour and earthy wisdom which shows the ups and downs of several generations of a farming family in the American Mid-West, concluding on an inspiringly positive note.
Blending old home movies and archive footage, shot over fifty years, in a maverick visual language, the film tells Farmer John’s highly personal story with the same sort of unpredictable creativity that he has applied to his own life.

Special mention:
We Feed the World by Erwin Wagenhofer
a film which explores with a strong verbal and visual style the absurd contradictions between food production in our modern world in which industrial food has never been more plentiful (and tasteless) but in which hundreds of millions go hungry.

These two films exemplify two different approaches to environmental documentary film- making, namely narrative and polemical, both of which are necessary and have distinctive virtues.


:: CINEMAMBIENTE - PROVINCE OF TORINO STUDENTS PRIZE :::


ZDROJ/SOURCE by Martin Marecek (Cze 2005).

The jury has decided to award the Provincial Student Council special prize to Martin Marecek’s documentary Zdroj (Source) for the director’s ability to tackle controversial issues head on. Including an animated sequence and background music in the soundtrack was an apt stylistic choice that lent the film a sharp note of irony. The recording crew succeeded in establishing a direct relationship with a variety of witnesses, putting them at ease in front of the camera. The film kept our attention because, although it portrays a reality far different from our own, we were able to link the situation it describes with our daily life. It is one of the few documentaries that investigates the world of oil mining, a natural resource we sorely depend on yet take for granted.
