‘Samuel in the Clouds’ wins Gold Hugo in Chicago

‘Samuel in the Clouds’ is the 2016  Chicago International Film Festival winner of the Gold Hugo in the Documentary Competition. Director Pieter Van Eecke was present to receive this award for his film. The jury shared wonderful comments about the film: “The Gold Hugo goes to a visually astonishing and quietly heartbreaking film that makes you experience climate change, not just think about it. In a humble cabin at the top of the world, science and spirituality might offer possible solutions to the frightening changes that endanger our future. Subtle yet urgent, modest yet ambitious, this film challenges us to confront the reality of global warming, but like its main character, it encourages us to keep hope alive.” Congratulations to Pieter Van Eecke for this great achievement!
