2000 Brussels Film Festival Award Winners

The fest run from June 27 to July 5 and here are the winners that all are movies that I’m really looking forward to be able to watch.

Golden Iris Award: Machan, Uberto Pasolini, Italy, Germany and Sri Lanka
« It is often said that the best stories are written by real life. But it needs a director who is able to tell the story for cinema. Director Uberto Pasolini (and his co-writer Ruwanthie de Chickera) and a great ensemble cast of Sri Lankan actors tell the story in a unique way. A warm hearted, human, incredibly funny film which never forgets the tragedy behind the story… Chapeau Uberto Pasolini ! »
