Berlinale 2019: Nadav Lapid wins the Golden Bear, François Ozon the Grand Jury Prize
The 69th Berlin International Film Festival, which took place from February 7 through 17, 2019, and whose jury president was Juliette Binoche, awarded its main prizes during the Closing Night ceremony on Saturday, February 15. Films produced or coproduced by France were high on the awards lists.
Synonyms by Nadav Lapid, produced, distributed, and sold by SBS, received the Golden Bear, the festival's top award, which was presented by Juliette Binoche. The film recounts the story of a young Israeli who arrives in Paris in the hope that France and the French language will save him from the madness of his country.
Agnès Varda was honored with a Berlinale Camera, presented to her by outgoing festival head Dieter Kosslick, a life achievement award that distinguishes "film personalities or institutions to which it feels particularly indebted and wishes to express its thanks."
