Juste un Mouvement festivals, screenings and awards

Vincent Meessen’s Juste un Mouvement had its world première at the 71st Berlinale. Many international festival participations, screenings, and awards have followed since.


Juste un Mouvement has received the following awards:

Jurors’ Award at the 59th Ann Arbor Film Festival (USA)
Prix Groupement National des Cinémas de Recherche (GNCR) at FID Marseille (F)
Prix Spécial Politique de la Ligue des Droits de l’Homme at the film festival for human rights in Guadeloupe: Mondes en vues, Festival International du Film des Droits Humains (FIFDH)
Prize for the Film About Art at the Brussels Art Film Festival (BAFF)
Best Belgian Documentary at Docville, Leuven.

Docville: “The jury of the National Competition consists of Rohan Crickmar, Ellen Vermeulen and Robin Broos. The jury finds ‘Juste un mouvement’ to be a fascinating, nuanced and formally inventive account of the life of Senegalese Maoist activist Omar Blondin Diop. The jury was absolutely united in their belief that this incisive documentary was the standout film of this year’s National Competition and warrants the highest commendation possible.”
