‘Overseas’ wins the award for Best Documentary Film at Warsaw Film Festival

Great news for ‘Overseas‘: the film wins the award for Best Documentary Film at Warsaw Film Festival. Here is the jury statement : “The author of this film stands on the side the weak and the wounded; in a delicate film form shows us drama of women compelled to separation with their families, loneliness and ruthless exploitation. 
In this lucid but very moving story, we saw the metaphor of a modern world full of injustice in which slavery still exists. 
This film is an excellent example of what “art of documentary” means – it’s humane, it’s precise and it’s making us reflect on our existence. The Best Documentary Award goes to “Overseas” by Sung-a Yoon.”

Award for ‘By the Name of Tania’

‘By the Name of Tania’ won the Jean Loup Passek Award at Melgaço International Documentary Film Fesitval in Portugal! Congratulations to the directors Bénédicte Liénard and Mary Jiménez and the team!

The jury statement:

“This film is a sensible combination of observational and storytelling techniques that depict a touching, intimate portrait of an individual’s disintegrating identity.
The filmmakers decided to make use of fictional techniques, so that the viewer is able to witness a crime from within and can experience the journey of a victim that stands for countless others.
At the same time the filmmakers dared to aestheticize the bodies of the victims to challenge the viewers` voyeurism.
By the poetic construction of the narrative, the film transforms a local Peruvian drama into an exemplary, universal Story about human trafficking.
Tania is the name of all the women that are victims of this kind of violence.”

Official selection ‘Overseas’

‘Overseas’, a film by Sung-a Yoon, produced by Iota Production and Les Films de l’oeil sauvage and coproduced by Clin d’oeil films will have its world premiere at Locarno Film Festival!

The jury statement:
“Pour sa poésie cinématographique orchestrée par des images et une bande-son immersives, pour ses témoignages émouvants, pour le regard triste et profond de cette inconnue qui mène un combat pour sa survie, le film tout entier porté par une esthétique contemplative est une ode à toutes les femmes qui comme elles continuent de résister face a la violence et l’exploitation du système capitaliste. Le prix spécial du jury est attribué au film ‘By the Name of Tania’ de Bénédicte Liénard et Mary Jimenez.”
