The Grierson Memorial Trust was delighted to present the 2004 Trustees' Award which recognises an outstanding contribution to the art of documentary.The award was presented by leading historian Simon Schamato to the film-maker Jonathan Gili, who died last month, in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the genre.
The free-spirited Gili produced documentaries memorable for their subtle wit, warmth, creative elegance. Schama described him as a 'poet of the human condition'.
