The Act of Killing wins Best Nordic Doc at Nordisk Panorama / by Mauricio Gonzalez-Aranda

The Act of Killing, directed by Joshua Oppenheimer and co-directed by Christine Cynn and Anonymous, won the award for Best Nordic Documentary at this year's Nordisk Panorama, which took place in Malmö, Sweden. 

The jury (Christian Bonke, director, Cara Cusumano, Tribeca Film Festival, and Kate Townsend, BBC Storyville) gave the following motivation: 
"For the 2013 Best Nordic Documentary Award, the jury has chosen to recognize a unique achievement in the landscape of non-fiction filmmaking, a crucial work which shines a light where there had been only darkness and deceit, at the same time as it forges a new path in documentary for future filmmakers to explore. For its groundbreaking approach to the documentary form, and its unflinching confrontation with atrocity, mendacity, and the human face of evil, the jury awards the 2013 prize to Joshua Oppenheimer's The Act of Killing."

We thank the jury for the award and the wonderful words!
