A film which tells the dramatic story of four characters fighting to protect the Virunga National Park, a Unesco world heritage site, which is the home of many of the world’s last 800 mountain gorillas, has taken out the main award at the International Documentary Film Festival ZagrebDox, which has been held in the Croatian capital this past week.
Virunga, by Orland von Einsiedel, won the Big Stamp award for the best film in International Competition at a ceremony on Saturday evening.
Marcell Gero’s ‘Cain’s Children’, a shocking and touching story of the boys who killed their loved ones, won the award for the best film in the Regional Competition, whilst the Little Stamp award for Best Film of a Young Author up to 35 Years of Age was won by Dénes Nagy’s Another Hungary.
A total of 150 films were shown in the past seven days during the 11th edition of ZagrebDox.
