‘Love’ unites world in Prague

Fest presents over 165 docus

PRAGUE — One World, a festival of films on human rights subjects, has presented its top prize to the U.S.-French film “Love and Diane” by Jennifer Dworkin. A special jury prize went to Steven Silver’s Canadian entry on Rwanda, “The Last Just Man,” which also picked up the audience award.

Former president Vaclav Havel attended last week’s closing ceremony to present The Vaclav Havel Special Award to the Japanese film “Daughter from Yan’an” by Kaoru Ikeya.

More than 20,000 people viewed the 165 films that screened at 11 cinemas around Prague. Abbreviated editions of One World will travel to 14 cities around the country.

Festival director Igor Blazevic told Daily Variety the festival has spawned smaller events in five other countries, including Belorussia and Afghanistan, which is expected to host screenings in late April.

“We destroyed the prejudice against documentary films,” Blazevic said. Noting that the festival began with just 48 films screening for 3,000 viewers in 1999, he added, “There is a growth of interest in really good documentary filmmaking.”
