First Polish feature length documentary on medical marijuana is the latest addition to the set of films awarded at the 18th WATCH DOCS.
Talal Derki won the main prize at the 18th WATCH DOCS Human Rights in Film Festival for his film Of Fathers and Sons, a moving story about fathers who happen to be ISIS militants, and whose love for their children isn’t hampered by their training to become jihadist fighters. This is what the jury had to say about its decision:
Join us for the last day of the WATCH DOCS Human Rights in Film Festival for our awards ceremony; the monumental Reason, winner of the main prize at the IDFA Festival; and the latest film from the winner of the Marek Nowicki Prize.
While the WATCH DOCS festival is slowly coming to an end, don’t expect us to slow down—we kindly invite you to an eventful Wednesday for Watch Docs films free of charge online, the impact of politics on the lives of refugees and our right to a clean environment.
We kindly invite you to the WATCH DOCS festival on Tuesday for debates about robots and medical marijuana, a report by the Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights and the first meeting with Talal Derki.
