Alma wins Web-Documentary award at Visa pour l’Image

Alma, a Tale of Violence, is a web-documentary co-produced by Upian, Arte and Agence Vu, presenting “a raw and poignant testimony from a former member of one of Guatemala’s most violent gangs,” say the producers. “A reformed criminal, Alma tries to resume a normal life despite facing death threats from her former gang associates.”

Dewever Plana and Fougère will receive a €8000 cash prize at a ceremony on 04 September at the Visa pour l’Image photojournalism festival in Perpignan.
