The­Sum­mit is tops for cine­matog­ra­phy

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - REELNEWS NEWS -

Fol­low­ing on from Tony Donoghue’s success in the short film sec­tion, Nick Ryan’s greatly ad­mired The

Sum­mit – a doc­u­men­tary con­cern­ing a 2008 as­sault on K2 – took an­other prize for the Ir­ish when the Sun­dance Film Fes­ti­val handed out its gongs on Sun­day night.

Hav­ing picked up the prize for edit­ing: world cin­ema doc­u­men­tary, The Sum­mit finds it­self tread­ing sim­i­lar ground to Ken Wardrop’s His

& Hers, which grabbed a cine­matog­ra­phy award at Sun­dance in 2010.

The win­ner of the jury prize for best US drama was Ryan Coogler’s Fruit­vale. That film, fol­low­ing the last days in the life of an AfricanAmer­i­can con­tro­ver­sially slain by traf­fic po­lice, also won the all-im­por­tant au­di­ence prize. Steve Hoover’s Blood Brother, study of a vol­un­teer work­ing with HIV/Aids pa­tients, took the prize for best US doc­u­men­tary.
