Satyajit Ray Award fetes ‘Vita’

LONDON – Hungarian film “Bolshe Vita” picked up the first Satyajit Ray Award at a ceremony in London on Dec. 2.

Firsttime feature director Ibolya Fekete, 45, received the award, designed to encourage young directors to perpetuate the late Indian helmer’s hallmarks of “humanity, values and artistry,” from Richard Attenborough, founding patron of the Satyajit Ray Foundation.

Fekete’s pic, a light ensemble drama set among transients in Central Europe during the late ’80s-early ’90s, has drawn kudos on the festival circuit since preeming at the Hungarian Film Week in Budapest in February, where it won the Gene Moskowitz (foreign critics’) Award. She gets an all-expenses paid trip to visit India’s main production centers.

The North Ireland-set political drama “Some Mother’s Son,” drew a special mention.
