Gold Elephant Award

                 DI ROYSTON ELLIS DEL 4 MARZO 2012! “
Gold Elephant Award
Many years ago, when I was leaving the Maldives resort of Kurumba Village (as it was then called), I tripped as I was boarding the speedboat to the airport, and was saved from falling into the ocean by a charming and fascinating Italian gentleman.
 Somehow over the years we have remained in touch (although he speaks no English, and I no Italian), so I was thrilled to learn last week that a short film he scripted called Di Terra in Terra (Land to Land) has been awarded the “First International Gold Elephant World” award as the “Best Film for Communications/Social Action.” It has also been nominated for the very important “Donatello Prize” in Rome.

Here is my friend, Piero Juvara with Lady Anna Multisanti and  the film’s star, Jali Diabate, at the prize giving ceremony held, it seems, in a beautifully ornate room.
The short film tells the story of an African refugee in Italy, the horrors he has suffered, the trials of surviving in his adopted land, his sadness, and his hopes for the future. It is very moving.
