Nanfu Wang and Jialing Zhang’s acclaimed One Child Nation and David Hambridge’s Kifaru were among the winners at the 22nd annual Full Frame Documentary Film Festival announced Sunday (April 7).

Wang and Zhang picked up the Reva and David Logan grand jury award for their award-winning feature One Child Nation (pictured), which delves into China’s one-child policy and how it reverberated through generations. Earlier this year, Amazon Studios acquired the feature, which took home the 2019  Sundance Film Festival grand jury prize.

Kifaru, which follows the last male northern white rhino in existence in Sudan, took home two awards at the Durham, North Carolina-based festival, including the Full Frame Audience Award for best feature film and the Full Frame Environmental Award.

Elsewhere, Sahra Mani’s A Thousand Girls Like Me was awarded the Center for Documentary Studies Filmmaker Award, while Whitney Legge’s One Thing in Nothing was honored with the Full Frame President’s Award. 

The 22nd annual Full Frame Documentary Film Festival took place from April 4 to 7 in Durham, North Carolina.
