German Film Wins At European Film Academy Documentary 2006

The European Film Academy has proudly announced that the award European Film Academy Documentary 2006 - Prix Arte goes to the film Die Grosse Stille (Into Great Silence) by Philip Gröning, Germany.
In co-operation with the European cultural channel Arte, the European Film Academy annually honours an outstanding achievement in documentary filmmaking. This year's jury was made up of Adela Peeva from Bulgaria (director/producer), Thomas Riedelsheimer from Germany (director), and Dorota Roszkowska from Poland (producer).
They screened all eight nominated documentaries at Berlin's Arsenal cinema and decided on the winner.
The Jury statement read: "Philip Gröning’s thoughtful film touches on the mystic quality of belief and our need for stillness and silence in contrast to modern life. It appears that the director, with a lot of patience, gained the trust of this enclosed community and returned with amazing images and sounds. 'Into Great Silence' is a great film about humanity and our shared European background."
The award will be presented during the Awards Ceremony at EXPO XXI in Warsaw on Saturday, December 2.
