BEST NEW NARRATIVE DIRECTOR AWARD WINNER: MANOS SUCIAS

  • Release Year: 2014
  • Runtime: 82 minutes

The Best New Narrative Director goes to Josef Wladyka for Manos Sucias:

Towing a submerged torpedo in the wake of their battered fishing boat, a desperate fisherman and naive kid embark on a journey trafficking millions of dollars worth of cocaine. Shot entirely on location along the Pacific coast of Colombia—in areas that bear the indelible scars of the drug trade—Manos Sucias refuses to glamorize the drug trade but rather seeks to offer a rare glimpse of its devastating effects. Executive produced by Spike Lee. |Read More

Best screen play narrative winner
The Best Screenplay Award goes to Guillaume Nicloux for The Kidnapping of Michel Houellebecq:

If novelist Michel Houellebecq had indeed been kidnapped during his 2011 promotional book tour, this may have been the definitive documentary on the case. As a wild alternative, Guillaume Nicloux's work of complete fiction starring Houellebecq himself playfully speculates on the reason for the mysterious disappearance. This highly entertaining, farcical piece of cinema parallels the wry characteristics of its unique and ever-unconventional subject. |Read More
