Peace Awards show heart

U.N.-backed event honors 'humanist' movies

“A Mighty Heart,” “Evening” and “The Darjeeling Limited” will vie for English-language film at the U.N.-backed Time for Peace Awards.

Kudos, founded by Marion and Robert Einbeck in 1994, honor movies that “further ideas of humanist values such as tolerance, better understanding between people, respect for difference or solidarity,” according to a rep for Robert Einbeck.

“Alexandra” will go against Irish musical “Once” in the European film category.

U.N. goodwill ambassador Angelina Jolie and Vanessa Redgrave are nominated for their dramatic turns in “Heart” and “Evening,” respectively, with Russian opera star Galina Vishnevskaya (“Alexandra”) the sole nominee in the European actress category.

Rounding out the list of nominees is Naomi Kawase’s Japanese pic “The Mourning Forest” for Asian film.

Nominations will be presented Tuesday to a jury of U.N. ambassadors in Geneva. Winners of the awards, which are under the patronage of UNESCO, will be announced in January and honored May 8 at a ceremony in London.
