Honorary Mention for an extraordinary documentary film talent

Chico Pereira (United Kingdom) for the film
Pablo’s Winter

The media have reported only the worst and have long lost interest in them: the miners and heavy industry workers who, apart from suffering colonial exploitation, made the old Europe great and rich. But one of them is left, stoically chain-smoking in well-framed black & white: the pensioned Spanish miner Pablo. He has little left in his twilight years except for a shadow on his lung and an obese grandson who trips over his supporting wheel. Saint Barbara, the miners’ patron saint, will note with pleasure and a smile that young filmmakers approach this clandestine world with as much loving care and eagerness as if they wanted to make a feature film.
