Award for Mountain Environment & Natural History at Banff Mountain Film & Book Festival

We are very excited to announce that ‘Samuel in the Clouds’ has won the award for Mountain Environment & Natural History at the Banff Mountain Film & Book Festival! We don’t want to withhold the jury statement, as it is truly beautiful:

“We become connected to films when something resounds deep inside of us. Sometimes a beautiful image or a moving piece of music can stir within us a strong emotional reaction. This film really struck a chord with us because of the honest and original way the topic of global warming is presented. It portrays, in a sobering way, the inner struggle of a man facing an uncertain future as the Chacaltaya Glacier slowly disappears.”
Gilles Chappaz, jury member
