BEST INTERNATIONAL DOCUMENTARY (60 MIN OR LESS)

FILM TITLE:   The Tribal Scoop

DIRECTOR:   beeswaranjan pradhan

SINOSSI

A small town of Sundergarh lying in the interiors of the state of Odisha has never been touched by modern civilization, but is paying for it with the blood of the tribal people living there. A people so backward that they still depend on forests for survival. And even those forests are fast being uprooted to make way for urban life.
In the midst of this cockpit of destruction there’s one hope that they are desperately clinging on to- Hockey. The game that was once the only form of entertainment for a people cut off from the rest of the world has now become a weapon with which Sundergarh is trying to claim it’s place in a world that never recognized it.

BEST ITalian DOCUMENTARY (60 MIN OR LESS)

FILM TITLE:   My war is not over

DIRECTOR:   Bruno Bigoni

 

SINOSSI

In his early twenties, in 1944, the English soldier Harry Shindler landed at Anzio to fight a war that would make him an adult and mark the rest of his life. Today, aged 95, Harry lives in San Benedetto del Tronto. He’s a widower; his Italian wife has passed away, but he has a son in Rome. He still has considerable energy, and spends his veteran days shedding light on the unresolved cases and events of the Allies’ advance in Italy. Harry is a reliable and experienced “Memory Hunter”. He constantly receives appeals, requests from veterans or relatives wanting to know the fate of a missing soldier. Some want to find the burial place of a soldier killed at the front, or track down a wreck. Harry is happy to help. He doesn’t do it for money, but for a debt with memory; memory in its most intimate, dreamlike, subjective form, of the kind that vanishes if not fixed with a sign, is the starting point for telling the story of Harry’s challenge, and the story of us all.
