We are so honored to receive the award for Best Feature Documentary International Filmmaker Festival of New York!
I'm only sorry that I couldn't be there, as I was on a film tour in East Europe, scheduled before we knew we'll be participating at IFFNY.
The Award Gala was hosted at the prestigious Kaufman Astoria Studio.
Accepting the award on our behalf from World Jewish Congress were Raphael and Mira Nekctalov, former Soviet refuseniks.
Ermira Babamusta (International Liaison & IFFNY Team) presenting the award to Raphael Nekctalov:
The screening, two days before the Award Gala was followed by a conversation with Glenn Richter, the film's film’s history advisor
and highly involved in the Soviet Jewry movement.
