Doc Alliance is the result of a creative project between six major European documentary film festivals: CPH:DOX Copenhague, DOK Leipzig, IDFF Jihlava, Planete Doc Review Varsovie, FID Marseille and Visions du Réel.
As part of this cooperation, each festival selects a film. An international jury then rewards the best movie with the Doc Alliance Award.
This year, the Doc Alliance Award goes to the Danish film THE WILL (Testamentet), by Christian Sønderby Jepsen.
Sometimes reality surpasses even the most incredible cock-and-bull stories. Both tragicomic and warm, this film follows three brothers who inherit a fortune from their grandfather. Even in Hollywood, nobody would believe in this story... stranger than fiction, this documentary proves that blood is thicker than water, and that true happiness can not be bought with money.
THE WILL (Testamentet) was presented as a Swiss premiere during Visions du Réel 2012, within the Doc Alliance selection.
