For the 67th edition of the most glamorous festival in the world, Bob SWAIM joined the Jury of the prestigious Prix François Chalais, which awards every year the film that best reflects the reality of our world, respecting the spirit of Journalist and Humanitarian François CHALAIS.

This year, the prize was given to Mauritanian Director Abderrahmane SISSAKO for his film « Timbuktu », an incredibly beautiful, moving and poetic film about the tragedy of a people governed by jihadists.

The special mention was awarded to Juliano RIBEIRO SALGADO and Wim WENDERS for their documentary The Salt of the Earth about the life and work of photographer Sebastião SALGADO.
