Dealing with Death wins IDFA Award 2020 for Best Dutch Documentary

Jury report:
"The Award for Best Dutch Documentary goes to a film that, in its construction as well as the quality of its narrative, takes us on a journey of initiation into the cultures of others in one of Holland’s most diverse neighbourhoods. Here the protagonist struggles to balance the needs of different communities with the corporate interests of the company she works for. Through parallel editing, a camera close to the protagonists, and solid cinematographic aesthetics, the filmmaker creates a strong, contemporary, and deeply human experience. The IDFA Award for Best Dutch Documentary goes to Dealing with Death by Paul Sin Nam Rigter."
