We are pleased to announce that the winner of the 2009 Cinema Politica Audience Choice Award is American Radical: The Trials of Norman Finkelstein. This time around we had an overwhelming response from Cinema Politica voters, with thousands casting their ballots - thanks to all who participated. H2Oil came in at second place while Taking Root: The Vision of Wangari Maathai rounded out third place. American Radical is one of our favourite films and we are delighted to see that our audiences agree! We will be giving out the award to the film's directors, Nicolas Rossier and David Ridgen this summer, and next month we will randomly choose our three lucky prize winners among those who voted. Thanks again to all who participated, despite the process occuring a little late in the year this time, and if you haven't watched American Radical yet, find out where it's screening and go see it (and our two runners-up films are pretty damn good too).
What a city! The entire day was riddled with weather and public transport problems. A temperature like -20C may not be such a shock for somewhere lik Montreal, but here in Stockholm, we definitely felt it. Despite it all, around 120 people showed up for the screening of H2Oil. Once again, our superstar panel did not cease to please. We had H2Oil's filmmaker Shannon Walsh present on Skype, Greenpeace Sweden's energy and climate expert Martina Kruger, and GES-Investment's Flemming Heden. Our audience served up all kinds of questions for each of them, unfortunately our Skype connection with Shannon was sketchy and hiccuped a few times. The mood was still, and "I can't believe this is happening in Canada" is just one of the many memorable quotes of the night. Shannon Walsh did an incredible job at putting this film together, and our panelists made sure that everyone left with some knowledge of climate politics and corporate social responsibility. - Vi hörs!
