Un Certain Regard winners unveiled
Last Saturday evening, Thomas Vinterberg and his jury members presented their main prize to Rithy Panh and honored four other films.
The Un Certain Regard Prize was awarded to The Missing Image by the Franco-Cambodian director Rithy Panh, which tells the story of the Cambodian genocide, focusing on efforts to come to terms with the past and the ongoing pain of survivors.
Rithy Panh dedicated his award to the dissident Iranian filmmaker Jafar Panahi, who is under house arrest in Iran and banned from making films.
The Jury Prize went to Omar by the Dutch-Palestinian filmmaker Hany Abu-Assad, a story of love and betrayal featuring three childhood friends and a young woman whose paths cross in Palestinian territory.
The award for Best Director was given to Stranger by the Lake by Alain Guiraudie, which recounts stories of love and sexuality at a homosexual cruising spot.
The Un Certain Regard Prize was awarded to the entire cast of La Jaula de oro by Diego Quemada-Diez, a Spanish director based in Mexico. The award was received by the film's three non-professional actors.
Fruitvale Station was honored with the Prize of the Future, the debut feature by the American filmmaker Ryan Coogler, who won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.
