Miscarriage of justice drama played at Venice fest

The Venice Film Festival’s independently run Critics’ Week awarded its prize to Italo helmer Guido Lombardi’s “La-Bas. A Criminal Education,” a gritty drama about illegal immigrants near Naples.

The nod, called Premio del Publico Kino, is awarded by the fest audience rather than a jury.

Gallic helmer Vincent Garenq’s miscarriage-of-justice drama “Presume coupable” (Guilty) won the Europa Cinemas Label for best European film in Venice Days.

Produced by Christophe Rossignon and Philip Boeffard, pic tells the true story of Alain Marecaux, a man unjustly accused of pedophilia, and the Kafka-esque judicial nightmare that ensued in what became known as the Outreau Affair.

Guilty,” sold by Films Distribution, will get support from the Europa Cinemas exhibitors network, who commit themselves to extending the length of its screen run and also pitch in promotion coin.

The Europa Cinemas Label awarded in Venice complements the Labels awarded at the Directors’ Fortnight in Cannes, Panorama in Berlin and at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival.
