Talent Dove of the Media Foundation of the Sparkasse Leipzig for an extraordinary documentary film talent

Terra deu, terra come (The Earth Giveth, the Earth Taketh) by Rodrigo Siqueira (Brazil)

 

The winning film drew the judges into a completely unknown (and evidently nearly forgotten) world. Its central character is the sort of person who probably only occurs once in a documentary film maker¹s life a fascinating and mesmeric individual and the director's recording of his connection to a vanishing world of rituals and myths was both fascinating but also historically important. This film clearly benefitted from unique access, gained over a long period, and was handled with great artistry.
It exposed a world we knew nothing about, and did it in a charming, amusing and often emotional way it really covered new territory, and opened a door into a truly documentary experience.
