Under The Starry Sky av Dyana Gaye vinner CinemAfricas filmpris

 
CinemAfricas festivaljury 2014 (bestående av Marie Strauss, Dani Kouyaté, Mats Utas och Arthur Diakité) har enhälligt utsett filmen Under The Starry Sky, regisserad av Dyana Gaye, till årets vinnare av CinemAfricas filmpris. 

Juryns motivering lyder:

"Under the Starry Skies is a beautiful film made by a woman, with a strong female presence. It’s a film about migration, identity and the examination of our lives as we live it, wherever or however we are. It is a film that needs to be told, needs to be seen because it is a film that is ahead of its time, and provides a pattern for others to follow."

Juryn ger också ett hedersomnämnande till filmen Crop av Marouan Omara och Johanna Domke. Motiveringen lyder:
"In this Egyptian documentary film a whole political landscape from Nasser to the Egyptian spring is framed without being shown. It is narrated without being visualized. Close-up images of Presidents and central political events are visualized only in our imagination by a slow, thorough, monotonous speaker voice; the voice of a long-serving photo journalist of Egypt’s largest newspaper. Somewhere down the road words and images swaps place in importance: images becomes background music as narration turns into spoken images. It is astute and it works."

Filmpriset innebär en prissumma samt att den vinnande filmen får distribution på Svenska biografer genom Folkets Bio. Dessutom får filmen DVD-distribution inom Sverige och når på så sätt ut till skolor, bibliotek, osv. över hela landet.
