‘Dick Verdult – It Is True But Not Here’ is selected for the Award contender of the Margaret Mead Film Festival, New York, USA.
The American Museum of Natural History’s Margaret Mead Film Festival screens documentaries that increase our understanding of the complexity and diversity of the peoples and cultures that populate our planet. The Mead Festival has evolved with the times while maintaining its important history and has grown steadily to reflect the ever-evolving incarnations of storytelling, technology and growing access to communities near and far. The Mead Festival presents the best in documentary, experimental films, animation, hybrid works, and more.

“What I hope to activate with the film is a sense of opening up of possibilities, through irony, poetry, encounters. One thing that making the film activated in me was curiosity about the details of the art practice and methods of someone whose work attracts me. What it also activated was endurance. I wanted the film to be light and cheerfull but to realise it, to structure it, took time.”
— Luuk Bouwman | Director, Dick Verdult
Margaret Mead Filmmaker Award Contender
The award is given to a filmmaker whose feature-length documentary displays artistic excellence and originality of storytelling technique while offering a new perspective on a culture or community remote from the majority of our audiences’ experience. Filmmakers with works making their U.S. premieres at the festival are eligible. On Sunday evening, the Mead Award winner will be announced in an awards ceremony in New York and will be shown in an encore presentation.
