Celebrating the 50th anniversary of another great Michigan film festival—one that has long been a haven for avant-garde and experimental masters from around the world— we are proud to present three recent winners of the Michael Moore Award for Best Documentary Film: a city symphony on the crazed pace of modern China’s urbanization; a view onto an island off the Peruvian coast where workers harvest the droppings of thousands of birds; and a portrait of life in a region of northern Russia that is still contending with the debris from hydrogen bomb testing.
