Film director Salome Jashi was distinguished with another prize for her documentary Taming the Garden at the Mallorca-based MajorDocs festival on Saturday, with the feature-length work earning the Jury Special Prize for Artistic Achievement.

The jury panel of the Spanish event picked Jashi's film as one "that truly trusts cinematic language and builds awesome visual poetry, with precision and mastery", as the Cinema du reel festival award-winning work was presented with the award.

The Sundance-screened Taming the Garden was shown to audiences of MajorDocs - an event structuring its programming around in-depth screenings and five-day sections for discussions - on two occasions last week.
