Silverdocs Winners

Here’s the list of winners at Silverdocs. I am very pleased that Darwin’s Nightmare won the jury prize–it’s a compelling and very upsetting film about the Nile Perch fishing industry and the way it exploits Africans. Though it made me glad to see that at least America isn’t the only asshole country in the world. Europe can be just as bad. More on this film in a bit.

    well the only way i could afford it was with a super-cheap flight and free lodging with family. and i used up the last of my vacation time for the trip, so it’s only weekend trips for me for the rest of the year…
