Michael Rowe-Directed Drama ‘Early Winter’ Wins Venice Days Award

VENICE- Australian-born, Mexico-based auteur Michael Rowe’s relationship drama “Early Winter” has scooped the Venice Days Award, the top nod in Venice’s independently run section, given by a jury of twenty-eight young European buffs, presided by French director Laurent Cantet.
In “Winter” the middle-aged David (Paul Doucet) works as a janitor in a retirement home, while his younger wife, Maya (Suzanne Clement) is wrapped in a world of technology that he cannot understand. Pic is being sold internationally by France’s Pyramide International. Rowe is know for “Leap Year,” which won the 2010 Camera d’Or award in Cannes.
The Venice Days award includes a cash prize of  Euros 20,000 to be split equally between the filmmaker and the film’s international distributor who agrees to use the sum received to promote the winning film internationally.
