Micah Macgee’s Petting Zoo wins the AUDIENCE AWARD
A YOUNG POET by Daniel Manivel (France, 2014, 71’)
The jury’s was motivated to award it the Best Film prize “for its expressive elegance, search for a simplicity of forms and a precise auteur register that looks knowingly to cinema of the past to create an original visual and narrative language that contains the power of poetry and art, a stimulating juxtaposition between settings and characters and an incisive stylization of the real.”
The jury also gives a Special Mention to the entire cast of THE MOTHER OF THE LAMB (Chile, 2014, 80’) by Enrique Farías and Rosario Espinosa “for its minimalism and intensity, admirable and constant search for truth as well as emotional force.”
And a Special Mention for the linguistic experimentation of TERRA (Italy, 2015, 64’) by Marco De Angelis and Antonio Di Trapani, “for its innovative nature, complex symbolic mapping and a visual narrative that pulls viewers into and beyond its images.”

PETTING ZOO (Germany/US/Greece, 2015, 92’) by Micah Magee
