Congratulations to Kitty Green and the small and talented crew of Ukraine is Not a Brothel. The film was nominated in all 6 AACTA documentary categories including our nominations for Best Sound and Best Score in a Documentary, and took home the top honours. Kitty was not able to attend the ceremony (more on that later) so producer Jonathan Auf de Heide, Zoë and I were there representing.
Another film featuring a collaboration between me and Kitty, the short film "The Face of Ukraine: Casting Oksana Bouil", was awarded the Short Film Jury Award: Non-Fiction at Sundance Festival last week. It was wonderful to have both films acknowledged, on opposite ends of the globe in the same week.
