Alice Rohrwacher wins at Chicago

The Gold Hugo for Best Film, in the International Feature Film Competition of 54th Chicago International Film Festival, is director Alice Rohrwacher’s Happy as Lazzaro.
Jury awarded the film "For profoundly enchanting, surprising, and moving us through a poetic cinematic language that is both genuine and rigorous, while intertwining past and present into a highly original, engrossing, layered, and uncanny viewing experience that invites us to face our own humanity with mystery, grace, and lyricism".
The Jury was composed by: Pablo Berger (director, Spain), Diego Lerman (director, Argentina), Asli Özge (director, Turkey), Andrea Pallaoro (director, Italy), Regina Taylor (actress, USA).
