Millennium Award (Planete + Doc 05/2014)

WE COME AS FRIENDS wins the main award at the Planete + Doc film festival (Warsaw/Poland). The Millennium Award includes prize money of 8,000 Euros.


Jury’s statement:

An astonishing fairytale film that takes viewers to the birthplace of humanity and civilization, explaining what the latter has become. Following events in Sudan, which form a bittersweet mosaic of surreal situations, people and places, the film questions the essence of our European civilization and exposes its narcissist cynicism, greed and appalling hypocrisy. It is a universal and deeply personal film, evoking both laughter and chills.

Jury members: Nino Kirtadze, Aleš Suk i Manuel Rougeron
