At Night I Fly wins Tempo Documentary Award 2012

 

Award given out to best Swedish documentary of the past year.

 Michel Wenzer's At Night I Fly received the Tempo Documentary Award 2012 at the Tempo Documentary Festival last weekend.  The jury's verdict:

"A both moving and disturbing film, with intelligent and poetic interpretation, which highlights the themes of humanity, acceptance, and the right of all individuals to tell their story. Unsentimental yet emotionally and with art's power as a red, strong thread, the film manages to show a new side of a world which we thought was over-exploited on film." 

Other awards that were given out included the Stefan Jarl International Documentary Award ('5 Broken Cameras', Emad Burnat & Guy Davidi) and the Tempo Short Award ('The Quiet One', Emelie Wallgren & Ina Holmqvist). For a full list of winners, see here.
