'THE LOOK OF SILENCE' WINS AWARD AT GIFF / by Mauricio Gonzalez-Aranda

The Look of Silence by Joshua Oppenheimer was awarded with the Dragon Award for best 'Best Nordic Documentary' at this year's Göteborg Film Festival.

The reason for giving the award to The Look of Silence was as follows:

"The award goes to a film which breaks the barriers between documentary and fiction, by opening up space for a performance of history. Using the camera to confront memories, and inspire reconciliation, this film's look at the tragical past shapes a nation's view of the future."
