|AMER awarded the Blade Award at LIFFF|
Friday, October 02, 2009
The programmers of The Lund FFF decided to create a new award for the 15th edition of the festival.
The award has been named The Blade and will be handed out annually to a festival favourite. A film that the programmers think should be lifted and hailed and that deserves to get a special mention.
The Award is an honerary award, but the filmmakers of Amer, Bruno Forzani and Hélène Cattet also received the actual price, a real kitchen knife(!) just before the screening of the last film at the festival, which fittingly enough was Argento's Giallo.
Bruno Forzani commented the award and the festival: "We wish that we will collect this kind of special awards to complete our panoply of giallo's assassino's knives!"
The award will from now on be handed out annually.
Amer had it's official world premiere here in Lund. The film is just as much an homage to long past film art as it’s a new breed standing on its own feet. In the film we get to follow Ana from childhood to adulthood. To its great advantage, Amer doesn't convey an apparent story or provide direct answers, rather it seduces you slowly with a razorsharp stroke.
