Jury Comments: "The award goes to a film that makes its own rules. Working with hundreds of hours of first-person-selfie-footage by Matthew Van Dyke, director Marshall Curry creates an unsettlingly ambivalent and often darkly amusing portrait of a generation hellbent on documenting itself. Do we celebrate the so-called "manliness" of its protagonist-or wonder what the hell he's doing inserting himself into the middle of a violent revolution, like a Zelig with his own camera? It's a question viewers will brood on-much as this jury did."
