‘Nordeste’ wins at Stockholm fest

Pic's Bouguet, Rovera share actress prize

STOCKHOLM Argentinian helmer Juan Solanas’ feature debut “Nordeste” won the top prize at the Stockholm Intl. Film Festival, which wrapped Sunday.

The French-Belgian-Spanish co-production weaves together the stories of a single mother in poverty-stricken rural northeastern Argentina and a Paris pharmaceutical rep who arrives in Buenos Aires determined to find a baby to adopt. As their paths cross, the story takes on issues of child trafficking, poverty and social injustice. Pic’s stars, Carole Bouquet and Aymara Rovera, shared the actress prize.

The prize for directorial debut went to “Me and You and Everyone We Know” by Miranda July, winner of this year’s Camera d’Or in Cannes.

Other debutantes dominated the list of winners at the Stockholm festival. “Festival,” the first feature from writer-director Annie Griffin, was awarded the script prize, while the Star! Audience Award went to Swedish sci-fi pic “Storm” by first-timers Mans Marlind and Bjorn Stein. Vincent D’Onofrio won the actor prize for Mike Mill’s first full-length movie, “Thumbsucker.”

The Fipresci jury awarded its film prize to Singapore helmer Eric Khoo’s drama “Be With Me,” which also won the fest’s prize for cinematography (Adrian Tan). The Fipresci jury’s choice in the Northern Lights section was Jacob Thuesen’s Danish drama “Accused.”
