‘Die Fremde’ wins Lux prize

European Parliament members pick German film

BRUSSELS — German Oscar hopeful “Die Fremde” (When We Leave) by Feo Aladag has won the European Parliament’s Lux prize.

Pic concerns a Turkish woman’s attempt to make a new life in Berlin after fleeing an abusive husband in Istanbul, a task made harder by her scandalized family.

Also on the shortlist were Belgium’s Oscar contender, “Illegal,” by Olivier Masset-Depasse, and “Akadimia Platonos” by Greek helmer Filippos Tsitos.

Voted by the 736 members of the Parliament, the Lux prize pays for subtitling in the 23 official languages of the European Union, plus production of a 35mm print for each of the 27 EU countries.
