GREEN received its 20th award at the FICMA (Festival International Cinema Del Medi Ambient) in Barcelona Spain.
It also received another award in Rome just a few weeks ago. This is what the jury wrote on the film:
THE BEST LONG FILM: GREEN
An extraordinary film that through the agony of an orangutan succeeds in showing the drama of deforestation and the extinction of forests. This is the story composed only of images, without interviews or outside speakers that reports with power, transparency and simplicity the problem that regards us all. With poetic and master language the director manages to impress the viewer by showing “in parallel” the “conscious” death of the orangutan and the tragedy of deforestation. Every spasm of Green’s pain is a cry against the destruction that a man is doing to nature. Through the story the author manages to oppose the natural system and the richness of biodiversity with the unsustainable agricultural system. A touching, emotional, worrisome but bright and objective film outlines the dreadful situation of the contemporary society. It is worth to be seen.
