No write-ups out there yet except for IndieWIRE's (aren't they always there first?), but A Walk Into the Sea was just voted the Teddy for Best Documentary at the Berlinale. Got the news tonight via cell phone from an excited Shannon Kennedy, who did such an extraordinary job editing the film. Hopefully, I'll touch base with Esther tomorrow and have more details to report.
In addition, Brian Brooks interviewed Esther as part of an IndieWIRE dispatch on 3 Berlin docs whose subjects "have garnered attention and etched an indelible mark on art and culture."
