Protagonist’s Sundance Winners!

By otm

Louise Osmond’s inspirational and life-affirming true story DARK HORSE wins the World Cinema Documentary Audience Award at Sundance 2015.

Set in a former mining village in South Wales, Dark Horse tells the story of a group of friends from
a working men’s club who decide to take on the elite ‘sport of kings’
and breed themselves a racehorse. Against all the odds,
their young foal, raised on nearby waste-land, goes on to become a
champion.  Until one day disaster

Germain McMicking takes home the Special Jury Award for Cinematography for her work on Ariel Kleiman’s PARTISAN

With mesmerising performances from Vincent Cassel and newcomer Jeremy Chabriel, Partisan is a story told through the eyes of 11-year-old Alexander. Like any other kid: Alexander is playful, curious and
naive. He is also a trained assassin. Raised in a hidden paradise on the
outskirts of town, Alexander has grown up seeing the world through the eyes of
his father, Gregori (Cassel). As Alexander begins to think for himself, Gregori’s
idyllic world begins to crumble.
