LES CHIPS, CA REFROIDIT PAS ! by Geraldine Frery

Best Italian Documentary (Italia Spazio Doc)
L'ORO BIANCO E ALTRI RACCONTI by Lorenzo Apolli
Jury statement: An organic film, mysterious and creative. The white gold and other tales returns the "state" dream of the mountain with a beautiful rhythm, with images and sounds made by, in fact, organicity of feeling and seeing, which resets the time and makes the film archeology of the future . A film that does not express metaphysical emphasis, or the usual nostalgic thinking but through the natural landscape and the "industrial" with intensity and clarity. Respecting the stage and the audience as it moves to remain firm, while living an area perhaps therapeutic.
Special Mention: Densamente spopolata e la felicità by Francesco Dongiovanni. For the narrative intensity and photographic sensitivity. For taking the point of view of a pastor and a wonderful land interspersed with a look and share with detached. For having staged the idyll without devote himself to the aesthetics and emphasis, offering a simple and profound abandonment of the viewer, which traces the rhetoric of roots and belonging to the land but return as possible and still lives.
Special Mention: Mi pace quello alto con le stampelle by Andrea Caccia. The sensitivity and the work that the director is on himself, on the beautiful listening skills.
