Last night Searching for Sugar Man won an Oscar for best Documentary! Chimney has had a big part in making it and this is the first time Chimney is involved in a film that wins an Oscar!  “We believed in Malik Bendjelloul from the beginning and saw huge potential in this project, therefore we helped Malik to finalize the film. It is great to get our belief in this documentary confirmed with an Oscar” says Fredrik Zander, head of the feature film department in Chimney.

The project was done mainly at the Stockholm office but in collaboration with Warsaw. A great example of when collaboration between the Chimney offices made it possible to deliver a project faster and better.

Congratulation to Malik and everyone at Chimney that has worked on it” says Samir.
