'Detropia' nabs two awards for direction, original score

The Emad Burnat-Guy Davidi documentary “5 Broken Cameras,” a shortlisted finalist for an Oscar nomination Thursday, earned top feature kudos at the Cinema Eye Honors for Nonfiction Filmmaking.

“I personally feel it’s one of the most beautiful pieces of artistic cinema,” said Michael Moore, who accepted the award on behalf of Burnat and Avidi.

Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady’s “Detropia” was the only film to win two awards at the ceremony held at the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria, Queens, for direction and original score.

Dimitri Doganis was honored for outstanding production for “The Imposter,” T. Woody Richman and Tyler H. Walk won for editing on “How To Survive a Plague,” Jeff Orlowski for cinematography on “Chasing Ice,” Oskar Gullstrand and Arvid Steen for graphic design or animation on “Searching for Sugar Man” and Jason Tippet and Elizabeth Mims for top debut with “Only the Young.”

Lee Hirsch’s “Bully” won the Cinema Eye Audience Choice Prize, and D A Pennebaker, who was honored at the AMPAS Governors Awards in December, saw his piece “The War Room” receive the Cinema Eye Legacy Award.

Nonfiction short honors went to Robert-Jan Lacombe’s “Good-bye Mandima,” the Spotlight Award to Wojciech Staron for “Argentinian Lesson” and the Heterodox Award for Narrative Filmmaking Jem Cohen’s “Museum Hours.”
