Awarded films


The jury stated: “In their visually imaginative leap from documentary to narrative filmmaking, Alessio Rigo de Righi and Matteo Zoppis follow their outcast protagonist from tragedy in 19th century Tuscia, Italy to reinvention, in the Argentine province of Tierra de Fuego. With a knowing eye, raw beauty and authentic texture these two filmmakers affirm the power and poetry of folklore.”
