Winner of the Audience Award!

July 9, 2012 | Posted by Daphne | 1 Comment

Children of the Wind had it’s World Premiere at the Aruba International Film Festival June 23-25 and we are ecstatic to report that we won the festival’s main award: “The Audience Award”! It was a wonderful week, and thanks to Tiara Air, many of the Bonaire boys in the film were able to join us.

Simon Braund of Empire Magazine writes:
“Film-wise, for Empire, the stand-out of the AIFF is still the documentary Children Of The Wind, a) because it’s a compelling story of triumph over adversity, b) because it is extremely well made, c) because of the irresistible personalities of the subjects, and d) because it achieves the impossible feat of making windsurfing interesting to non-aficionados. “

  • i was in Aruba watching the Children of the Wind troupe walk that red carpet with pride; I learned a lot about people and Bonaire from standing there, listening to the stories and reading the media coverage. Two thumbs up for inspiring yourselves and others.
