Lux Prize 2011 Final Three: Attenberg, Play and The Snows of Kilimanjaro

26 July 2011 8:20 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Once they were ten. Now they are three. Athina Rachel Tsangari’s Attenberg, Robert Guédiguian’s The Snows of Kilimanjaro and Ruben Östlund’s Play have gone thru into the final round of the European Parliament Lux Prize. Among the three chosen finalists we have a film about a women discovering her sexuality in an economically starved Greek town and more recently from Cannes, we have the perfectly executed crimes committed and "acted" by pre-teens in an otherwise very tolerant Swedish town.

I've yet to see Guédiguian’s The Snows of Kilimanjaro, but it to was presented at this year's Cannes Film Fest. The award will be given out in mid-November, so you can check back with us - as we'll be curious »

Director Giorgio Gosetti has mounted an edition that includes some gem auteurs and newbie filmmakers we've been keeping tabs on for the better half of 2010/2011. For the most part consists of French productions and of the "12 feature films in the Official Selection, three Special Events, one short opening film and two special collaborations," Lou Ye's Love and Bruises - a film that was a tad not ready for Cannes is indeed ready to go on the Lido.
