A Girl In The River scoops another award

NEW YORK-Last weekend saw the release of her second animated film 3 Bahadur: The Revenge of Baba Balaam and now comes news that she has won the Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award for her Oscar-winning documentary A Girl In The River: The Price of Forgiveness. A Girl In The River follows the life of an 18-year-old girl who is a survivor of an honour killing attempt.

The duPont-Columbia award is considered the Pulitzer of broadcasting, and Sharmeen’s already won one for her earlier documentary, Children of the Taliban in 2010!

The award was established in 1942 and administered since 1968 by the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism in New York City.

Of the 14 winners announced on the Columbia University website, A Girl In The River was one of two documentaries that made the cut. The other duPont winner is ESPN Films’ OJ: Made in America, a nearly eight hour-long documentary on the life of O. J. Simpson and how it signifies America’s two greatest obsessions: race and celebrity.

The winners will be awarded at Low Memorial Library, Jan. 25, 2017, at the awards’ 75th anniversary celebration.
