DOCUMENTARY FEATURE | 74 MIN | 2011

BEST NEW DOCUMENTARY DIRECTOR AWARD

The 2011 winner is Like Water.

Anderson Silva is the longest-reigning UFC Middleweight Champion and one of the greatest mixed martial arts fighters of all time. This behind-the-scenes documentary gives a surprising look at the man behind the fighter and the dedication and commitment it takes to stay at the top. From Silva's life in Brazil with his wife, three sons, and two daughters, to training with his team in Los Angeles and Miami, first-time filmmaker Pablo Croce peels back the layers of an ultimate fighter to reveal the heart of a champion.

A man of few words, Silva does not shamelessly play into the media hype machine—although he is continuously taunted by opponents who do. He aligns more with the philosophy of Bruce Lee than Muhammad Ali, and is pound for pound just as effective. Confusing to promoters and opponents, Silva's own psychological game is a mystery, but perhaps it is just because his path is more about the simplicity of hard work and the quest for perfection. Croce's hard-hitting documentary exposes the unseen side of Ultimate Fighting and culminates in one heart-pounding fight that signifies more than just another championship.
