We’re so honored to receive the award of best international feature length documentary for Waiting for August @Hot Docs 2014.
Jury statement : Tonight’s winner is a beautifully crafted vérité film that reveals its central characters through the details of everyday life. With balance and nuance it shows a family dealing with the stress created by harsh economic realities. However, what makes Waiting for August truly special is that by the time it is over you will have laughed, cried, and become one of the family.
The film received also a special jury mention @Visions du Réel.
