“Midnight Family” and “Earth” took home the two top awards at the 26th annual Sheffield Doc/Fest last week.

Luke Lorentzen’s “Midnight Family” won the Grand Jury award.  The film follows a family trying to make a living by operating a private ambulance service in Mexico City.  The jury praised the film for providing a “timely warning to the dangers of privatized healthcare.”

The respected UK documentary festival awarded its inaugural International Award to Nikolaus Geyrhalter’s “Earth,” which charts the environmental destruction wrought by large-scale mining.

See the complete list of winners at the Sheffield Doc/Fest website.
