CANNES '08 | "Tulpan" Wins Un Certain Regard Prize

Sergey Dvortsevoy‘s “Tulpan” won the Prize of Un Certain Regard at the Cannes Film Festival tonight in France, while Kurosawa Kiyoshi‘s “Tokyo Sonata” won the jury prize. Other prize winners include Andreas Dresen‘s “Wolke 9” (Heat Throb Jury Prize), James Toback‘s “Tyson” (The Knockout of Un Certain Regard) and Jean-Stephane Sauvaire‘s “Johnny Mad Dog” (The Prize of Hope). The Un Certain Regard section presented 20 films that were judged by a jury lead by filmmaker Fatih Akin, who offered the statement, “Our mission was to attribute three prizes for Un Certain Regard, but considering the quality and richness of the offerings, and as a testimony of our great enthusiasm, the jury requested of the festival permission to recognize two more films with honors.” [Eugene Hernandez]
