Concorso documentari internazionali

Premio ASJA Energy

Prize assigned to

The jury of the international documentary section of Cinemambiente 2006 first of all congratulates the organizers on the high quality of the nine films selected, which made our job very difficult. After a lively and wide-ranging discussion, we decided to award the prize to The Real Dirt on Farmer John by Taggart Siegel, a film full of humour and earthy wisdom which shows the ups and downs of several generations of a farming family in the American Mid-West, concluding on an inspiringly positive note. Blending old home movies and archive footage, shot over fifty years, in a maverick visual language, the film tells Farmer John’s highly personal story with the same sort of unpredictable creativity that he has applied to his own life.
