Winner of the Amnesty International Award for Best Human Rights Film is:
I Am Not Your Negro by Raoul Peck
Through powerful storytelling the author successfully bridges the gap between historical circumstances and their relevance today. One of the greatest ongoing human rights battles is presented using a complex film structure, while at the same time creating a story with a strong audience appeal.
For the courage of the film-maker, the film’s originality, and its success in creating a ethereal, haunting reality, but one in which we can feel its tangible presence.
