Darren Aronofsky’s films win 5 Gold Lions
The films for The New York Times brand campaign ‘The Truth is Hard to Find’, directed by Darren Aronofsky (‘The Wrestler’, ‘Reqiem for a Dream’, ‘Black Swan’, ‘Noah’) have won 5 Gold Lions this year at Cannes. ‘Tyler Hicks’ and ‘Bryan Denton’ won a Gold Lion each in both Film and Film Craft – editorial categories, and the ‘Daniel Berehulak’ piece also won a Gold Lion in Film Craft. The campaign was created by Droga5 NY, and highlights the work of photojournalists and their specific stories.
“Instead of being maligned and mistrusted, journalists should be respected and thanked. For me, it was an honour to speak with them about their methods and some of their toughest assignments. I hope the commercials pay tribute to the important work these men and women have done and continue to do.” – Aronofsky.
