Another award for the documentary about Venezuelan refugees

Events

The festival is organized by the American charity initiative Heal One World which is located in Los Angeles. The Awareness Film Festival aims to raise awareness of problems that exist in modern societies. The films presented there make one think critically, and the festival itself allows the audience to spot social – political problems which are not often tackled and clearly stated. The images shown at Awareness Film Festival deal with topics related to ecology, politics, health and spirit. The event’s organizers emphasize that by granting awards they want to honor these film makers from the whole world who contribute to introducing positive, social changes.

The documentary film “For Our Children” by Dominika Kulczyk shows the humanitarian crisis in Venezuela. The President of Kulczyk Foundation travels to border Columbian town Cucuta to learn the fate of the people fleeing Venezuela – most of all women. They cross the bridge Simon Bolivar which is at the border of Venezuela and Columbia, and is often called “a bridge of desperation”. Their stories reveal a moving collective portrait of people fighting for survival and dignified life. Although they are in a very difficult situation, they find great strength in themselves and take a superhuman effort to find happiness and chance for a better life. One of the documentary series “Domino Effect” was made based on the fate of the rest of the refugees which you can watch here.

The award granted at the 11th Awareness Film Festival is another prize for the documentary “For Our Children”. In February 2020 it was awarded with the best full – length documentary film at the American Golden Picture International Film Festival which was held in Jacksonville in the USA.
