"Alick and Albert" wins special jury prize

Presented in competition at the 19th International Festival of Oceanic Documentary Films (FIFO), which took place in Papeete, French Polynesia, from February 5 to 13, 2022, the documentary “Alick and Albert” won a special jury prize.

FIFO selected 12 feature films from the 120 films screened by the pre-selection committee. Presented to the public at the Maison de la Culture de Tahiti and online, the films in competition were submitted to a jury chaired by Emmanuel Kasarhérou, President of the Musée du quai Branly – Jacques Chirac.

“Alick and Albert” is one of five films to win an award. By awarding the Special Jury Prize, Beckie Stocchetti, member of the jury and executive director of the International Film Festival of Hawaii, said: “The jury was very impressed by this film which… which speaks of a global, planetary problem, climate change. This movie is a source of inspiration for all of us to protect our oceans and all the marine life therein.”

Directed by Douglas Watkin, the film traces the relationship and exchanges between HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco and the Australian artist Alick Tipoti on the occasion of the exhibition “Taba Naba: Australia, Oceania, Arts of the Peoples of the Sea” at the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco in 2016 and their encounters that followed on the island of Badu, in the Torres Strait in northern Australia in 2018 during a Monaco Explorations mission, and then in Monaco in 2019.

The film questions the diversity of the relationship between Man and Nature in today’s world and transmits a universal message in favour of peace, tolerance, dialogue between cultures and harmony between Humanity and the Ocean.
