Tribeca Film festival jurors selected Kim Mordaunt‘s “The Rocket” for best narrative film and “The Kill Team” for best documentary during an awards ceremony on Thursday evening.

“The Rocket” tells the story of a young boy [Sitthiphon Disamoe] who enters a rocket festival to help save his poverty-stricken family that’s been uprooted for the construction of a dam. The 10-year-old star also won best actor for his stellar performance. “The Kill Team” chronicles the examination of a group of U.S. soldiers charged with killing Afghan civilians.
