This year’s Copenhagen International Documentary Festival (CPH:DOX) in Denmark handed out its top prize, the Dox:Award, to John Skoog’s “Ridge.”
The film is an artistic hybrid documentary portrait of the Swedish summer, featuring visual art, abstract fiction, and documentary material from Skåne, the country’s southernmost county.
