The names of the possible future winners of the 8th edition of the Doc Alliance Selection Award are already circulating across festivals and media. The luckiest of the nominated directors will receive the award on August 8, 2015 in Locarno. However, the important decision about the award winner is not brought by luck but rather by the jury comprised of seven leading European film critics. We are introducing the first one of them, Portuguese representative of Público Daily Jorge Mourinha!
PETITION (The Court of Complaints)
2009 / China, France / 124 min
Film unavailable :-(
Sorry, this film is no longer available.
This epic examining the basis of the current Chinese political system is based upon a twelve-year-observation of people who arrived to Peking with complaints concerning their local governments. Most of them were put away to slums where they have, in their effort to achieve some justice, been existing in absolute poverty for up to several years.
