We’re very honoured to announce that Waiting for August received the award of best international feature documentary at Hot Docs 2014.
Jury statement : Tonight’s winner is a beautifully crafted vérité film that reveals its central characters through the details of everyday life. With balance and nuance it shows a family dealing with the stress created by harsh economic realities. However, what makes Waiting for August truly special is that by the time it’s over you will have laughed, cried, and become one of the family.
The film also received a special jury mention at Visions du Réel.
Jury statement : For their humanity, for the precision of their mise-en-scene and their future impact . All the best ! Boa sorte ! Buena suerte ! Buona fortuna !
