'White Massai' nabs special jury prize

RIO DE JANEIRO — Ham Tram’s “Journey From the Fall,” a U.S./Thai production, won feature honors at the third Amazonas Film Festival for adventure features and ethnographic and wildlife docs, which wrapped Thursday. The jury, headed by U.S. helmer Irvin Keshner gave a special prize to German helmer Hermine Huntgeburth’s “The White Massai.” Sergei Bodrov’s “Nomad,” from Kazakhstan, got the audience prize.

The documentary jury, presided over by British helmer and producer Paul Redman, gave wildlife prize to Brazil’s “Shark Rebellion,” directed by Rodrigo Astiz and Malcolm Hall. It gave a special wild life prize to French helmer Bernard Guerrini’s “The Hidden Jungle.”

The jury granted the ethnographic award to “My First Contact,” a Brazil/France doc by Mari Correa and Kumare Ikpeng. Gali Meiri’s “Gatos” (Cats), an Israel/Brazil doc, got a special ethnographic prize.

Ceremony was held in the landmark opera house of Manaus, a city in the heart of Brazil’s Amazon rain forest.

Afterward the public attended an outdoors screening of local Luiz Adalberto Pereira’s “Tapete vermelho” (Red Carpet) in front of the opera house on Sao Sebastiao square.
