Don Quijote winner Evora - FIKE 2007

"Indians" é sobre um homem que está a morrer de ataque cardiaco na paz de uma imensa paisagem. O Juri decidiu atribuir-lhe o prémio Don Quijote devido à sua intensa atmosfera harmoniosa. De referir ainda a sua impressionante fotografia e banda-sonora contemplativa. Todas as imagens se encontram ligadas por um contínuo, quase poético, desenrolar de memórias dos importantes momentos da sua vida - sem qualquer medo da morte.


"Indians" is about a man dying of a heart attack in a peaceful landscape. We decided to award Indians, because of its harmonious atmosphere. This is due to its amazing photography, and contemplative soundtrack. All the images are connected by a continuous, almost poetical flow of memories on important moments of his life - without any fear of dying.
