Dutch documentary RAINMAKERS awarded at Rome and Sheffield

Last weekend Dutch documentary RAINMAKERS by Floris-Jan van Luyn was awarded at two prestigious international filmfestivals.

At the International Rome Film Festival the film received the 'Marc'Aurelio Award' for Best Documentary and the WWF Award for Biodiversity. The Award for Best Documentary contains a prize of Euro 10.000,-.  Last Friday the film was awarded with the Sheffield Green Award at the Sheffield International Documentary Festival.

RAINMAKERS is produced by Submarine (I Wanna Be Boss, Rembrandt’s J’Accuse) in coproduction with VPRO and ZDF, in cooperation with ARTE.

RAINMAKERS is an investigative documentary about the decline of China's environment. The story is told from the perspective of four civil activists who refuse to accept the ongoing ecological destruction of their homeland. On the border of heroism and stubbornness, four diverse and remarkable Chinese civilians explain why they have the courage to fight the pettish and aggressive local authorities, against all odds.
