ESPOO, Finland – Earlier this week we brought you word on Eduardo Cachucho winning the 2008 Nokia Mobile Filmmaking Awards for his 55-second short film entitled The Game, announced at Pangea Day last Saturday,
Eduardo today gave his reaction to winning the award, and touches on what he was hoping to achieve with his mini movie set in a video games room that forms part of the KwaTherma Chess Academy in a South African township.
“It was a huge surprise for me to win this awards. I couldn’t believe it was me when the winner was announced at the broadcast. With my film, I wanted to tell the world that children are children everywhere, no matter where they live, what their race is, or whether they are rich or poor. Children are the same all over and want to have fun and play.”
