Sergio wins audience award at Telluride film festival!
From the Telluride Daily Planet:
The 2009 Mountainfilm Festival plopped its audience in front of gorgeous canyons and tremendous acts of bravery, audacious hoaxes and evil corporate maneuvering, boundless compassion and extraordinary individuals.
In the end, it was one of these individuals — Sergio Vieira de Mello — who stole the hearts of the movie-goers.
Greg Barker’s film, “Sergio” is a meticulously-crafted portrait of de Mello — the former United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights whose life was cut tragically short when a truck bomb exploded below his office in Baghdad. “Sergio” won the Audience Choice Award at this year’s festival.
Watch out for online stream of some of my music from the film… coming soon!
