TASTE OF CEMENT wins The Harrell Award for Best Documentary Feature at the The Camden International Film Festival (CIFF)

The Jury stated the winning film was chosen “For its masterful use of visual metaphor, breathtaking sound design and poetic restraint in telling the chaotic story of war and its exiles.”

On Sunday, September 17, CIFF hosted their annual Awards Ceremony, presenting four awards for documentary features and one for a documentary short, in addition to its Points North Pitch Award.
This year’s jury of Molly O’Brien (Fork Films), Robb Moss (Filmmaker), and Jose Rodriguez (Tribeca Film Institute) awarded the 2017 Harrell Award for Best Documentary Feature to Ziad Kalthoum’s Taste of Cement, with Special Jury Mention going to Gustavo Salmerón’s Lots of Kids, a Monkey and a Castle.
Taste of Cement won six awards since its World Premiere in Nyon in April.
