The winners of the 2022 edition

As for this year’s awards, Go Friend Go by Gabriele Licchelli, Francesco Lorusso, Andrea Settembrini, says a last minute on the pier of the port of Patras in Greece. It is the first stage of the Balkan route crossed by countless people every year.

The award ceremony was motivated as follows:

this film shows the steps of those who attempt an exodus from horror by placing themselves at their side, whether they have already arrived, rejected, or are still hidden, hunted down, fleeing.

The film mixes eyewitness accounts with audio and video recordings and succeeds in conveying the taste of earth, effort and obstinacy of a journey that perhaps will never end.

The film may be available On Demand and will have the opportunity to be published in the home video series POPOLI Doc.

Into the Weeds di Jennifer Baichwal shows former custodian Lewayne “Lee” Johnson and his fight against Monsanto, the agrochemical multinational acquired by the German pharmaceutical giant Bayer in 2018, due to the use of the very dangerous glyphosado.

The award was motivated as follows:

a necessary film that proves that the struggle of those who do not have economic power cannot be in vain if supported by a part of society who persist against everything in considering the truth, health, survival of the ecosystem as our greatest wealth.

The film will be distributed On Demand on the https://www.cgtv.it/ platform.
