Trio compete for Lux prize

Three films will compete for the European Parliament’s Lux cinema prize this year. Pics are selected for their depiction of European values and culture, or their contribution to debate on the European project.

“Delta,” by Hungarian helmer Kornel Mundruczo, is a lush back-to-nature tale about a young man returning to an isolated village on a river delta.

“The Silence of Lorna,” by Belgium’s Dardenne brothers, tells the story of an Albanian woman drifting into crime as she tries to build a new life.

“Obcan Havel” is a documentary about former Czech president Vaclav Havel from Miroslav Janek and Pavel Koutecky.

The competing films will screen in the Brussels Parliament over the next month. European Parliament members who have seen the films are allowed to vote. The winner will be announced Oct. 22.

As an aid to distribution, the prize pays for subtitling in the 23 official languages of the European Union.
