‘Dooman River’ wins at Paris Cinema

Arizona Films to distribute in France

PARIS — Chinese helmer Lu Zhang’s “Dooman River” topped the kudos at the 8th Paris Cinema Film Festival, which wrapped Monday.

Produced by Guillaume de Seille’s Arizona Films, the pic nabbed the jury prize as well as an award from a jury of French students.

The French-South Korean pic preemed at the Berlin Film Festival in February where it won a special mention from the Generation 14plus youth jury.

Pic follows the friendship between two teenage boys brought up on opposite sides of the Dooman River, which divides North and South Korea.

Arizona Films, which produced Zhang’s “Desert Dream” in 2007, will distribute “River” in Gaul in August.

Headed by British actress Charlotte Rampling, the Paris Cinema jury included Palestinian multihyphenate Elia Suleiman, Italian actress Elisa Sednaoui, French thesp Tom Novembre and Gallic writer Eric Reinhardt.
