Best Documentary

ONE EARTH by Francesco de Augustinis (Italy) – Length 01:32:30
From the outside, they don’t even look like farms: they are blocks of concrete several floors high, hidden in an earth quarry, in the center of a mountain in the remote heart of China. Within them, a hyper-intensive production of pigs, destined to supply the Asian giant’s ever-increasing demand for pork.Around this hyper-technological breeding, a symbol of human progress, a story unfolds that touches the four corners of the planet, showing how the global food system is irreversibly compromising the fragile balance of the planet, contributing to the current global crises such as climate change, epidemics, the collapse of biodiversity.From China, the new economic and food production giant, to the laboratories of the “Food Silicon Valley” in the Netherlands, to the disputed lands to the indigenous populations in Brazil, to the global threats to human health, to the ethical questions that underlie our relationship with nature: “One Earth” tells stories apparently distant from each other, revealing how everything is connected, as in a complex system that rests on a fragile balance.

Best Director

GARBAGE BIN MEALS by Dr Satyakam Phukan (India) – Length 29:42
While humanity has progressed and made complex systems for its existence, while these systems have boosted trade and commerce, while humanity has made inroads into the outer space, humanity has also retrogressed. A section of the humanity still lives the lives of scavenging animals in urban jungles, surviving on discarded rotten things.To the conventional psychiatrist they are all numbers. This is the contradiction and paradox before the humanity today. There are no actors in this film, everything is cent percent real, there is actually no director also, providence itself is the director, there is only the cinematographer, script writer and the editor.
