Finland festival honors ‘Milan’

Kezele's short film wins top honors

German helmer Michaela Kezele’s 23-minute short “Milan” won the Grand Prix at Finland’s 37th Tampere Film Festival on Sunday night.

Kezele’s anger at the 1999 NATO air raids of Belgrade inspired her to make the pic, about a young boy who finds a NATO pilot whose parachute is tangled in a tree.

The Risto Jarva Prize went to Panu Heikkila’s 55-minute “Nature and Health,” about the flood of Russian immigrants into Finland.

The festival held a tribute to 84-year-old Jonas Mekas, the godfather of American avant-garde film, who was present at the event.
