Handed out at the Cannes Film Festival since 2015 by the Scam (Civil Society of Multimedia Authors) in partnership with the Ina, and serving to single out the best of the documentaries screened across the various selections on the Croisette, the Golden Eye Award, given out this year by a jury chaired by French director Emmanuel Finkiel (flanked by British filmmaker Kim Longinotto, French actress Lolita Chammah, French critic Isabelle Danel and the USA’s Paul Sturz, the director of the True/False Film Fest), has crowned Samouni Road [+leggi anche:

Samouni Road, which was chosen by the jury on account of “its intelligent way of filming, the right distance in its point of view, its sensitive outlook, and the brilliant and subtle use of animation to strengthen the storytelling”, was produced by Picofilms and Dugong Films together with Rai Cinema and Alter Ego Production, in co-production with ARTE France Cinéma and ARTE France Unité Société et Culture. The film’s international sales are handled by Doc & Film International.
The jury also gave out two Special Mentions: one to Northern Irish director Mark Cousins for his doc The Eyes of Orson Welles [+leggi anche:
