BERLINALE PANORAMA 2014: KUZU (THE LAMB) BY Kutluğ ATAMAN WINS CICAE ART CINEMA AWARD!

The CICAE is proud to announce that the members of its jury awarded Kuzu (The Lamb) by Kutluğ Ataman as best film in the Panorama Section of Berlinale 2014 (www.berlinale.de), which took place from February 06th-16th. The annual Berlinale Award Ceremony of Independent Juries took place at noon in the Saarland State Representation in Berlin, Germany.

The Jury was composed by: Sylvie Da Rocha (Cinéma Le Studio, France), Kathy Bonomi (Jacob Burns Film Center, USA), Jörg Jacob (Provinz 80 Programmkino GmbH, Germany)

Jury’s statement:

“This film, set in Anatolia, is an allegorical tale about coping with the modern world through childlike, intuitive understanding. Humorous and gentle, the story is about the poorest family in a remote mountain community, which can’t afford a lamb for the celebration of their son’s circumcision. Every aspect of the filmmaker’s art comes together in service of the story, from cinematography that captures the enormity and power of the landscape to superb casting and performances, especially by the young actors. Director Kutluğ Ataman serves up a cinematic feast with his film Kuzu (The Lamb).”
