Pablo's Winter

Healthy Workplaces Film Award

The European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) presented its fourth Healthy Workplaces Film Award at the 55th International Leipzig Festival for Documentary and Animated Film (DOK Leipzig) in October 2011.

The prize for best documentary on work-related topics was awarded to Chico Pereira of Spain for his film Pablo's Winter.

"This sincere film, beautifully shot in black and white, tells the story of the terminal decline of a small town and one of its inhabitants. Cleverly using fiction techniques, the film reveals the serious damaging effects of bad working conditions and poor lifestyle choices."
