, helmed by Austria’s Sebastian Meise and channelling Jean Genet and RW Fassbinder, has emerged as the winning film at the 18th Seville European Film Festival, scooping the Golden Giraldillo. This was decreed by the jury of the Official Section, made up of Christos Nikou, Christian Petzold, María del Puy Alvarado, Cristina Hergueta and Ingvar Sigurdsson, “for its bravery and its sensitive portrayal of the struggle for freedom in a prison environment, which not only shows a historical reality, but also functions as a metaphor for the inner world of the protagonists”. This co-production between Austria and Germany also picked up the Best Actor Award for Franz Rogowski (most famous for his roles in Undine [+leggi anche:

 by France’s Arthur Harari, which took home the Grand Jury Prize, “because it makes us reflect on power structures through an incredible mise-en-scène”. It also picked up the Best Screenplay Award for the script written by the director himself and Vincent Poymiro, and it tells of the adventures of a Japanese soldier who continues to bear arms for almost 30 years, ignoring the fact that World War II ended a long time ago. The debut feature by Mounia Akl, a co-production with Spain called Costa Brava, Lebanon [+leggi anche:

, also took home (ex aequo) the Grand Jury Prize for being “a brilliant debut film, revealing new layers in every scene and showing us the situation of a whole country through the personal story of a family”. Written by Akl together with Clara Roquet, and with Carlos Marques-Marcet in charge of its editing, it portrays a dystopian future, where Lebanon is going through an environmental crisis that leads a family to take refuge in a remote part of the mountains, aiming to maintain an alternative lifestyle.

The jury of the 18th edition of the Seville European Film Festival also decided to reward Italian-US helmer Jonas Carpignano, crowning him Best Director for his third feature, A Chiara [+leggi anche:
