‘Lion’ Cinematographer Greig Fraser Wins Camerimage’s Golden Frog

BYDGOSZCZ, Poland — “Lion,” the Australian/U.K./U.S. story of an Indian boy fighting to find his family, scored the Golden Frog for lensing for Greig Fraser at the 24th edition of Poland’s Camerimage cinematography fest, wrapping Saturday at the grand Opera Nova in Bydgoszcz.

DP Bradford Young took the Silver Frog for Denis Villeneuve’s “Arrival” with bronze going to fest regular Anthony Dod Mantle for his creative work on Oliver Stone’s “Snowden,” capping a week of recognition for the best in visual achievements in global cinema.

The claustrophobic, one-shot takes in “The Last Family” won the Polish film section for DP Kacper Fertacz in a fact-based HBO Europe film about a notorious family of artists while the docu feature prize went to “Tempestad,” lensed by Ernesto Pardo and directed by Tatiana Huezo.

Gerry Floyd’s evocative images conveying the loss of vision won the docu-drama prize for “Notes on Blindness,” directed by Peter Middleton and James Spinney.

Docu shorts jury chair Jay Rosenblatt commended the courage of DP Nina Badoux with a special mention for her remarkable footage from the frontline in “The Sniper of Kobani” by Reber Dosky, while cinematographer Pablo Valdes won the short docu main prize for “I’m Not From Here” by Maite Alberdi and Giedre Zickyte.

The evening’s second honored female DP, Juliette Van Dormael, drew applause while winning the cinematographers’ debut prize for the fairytale-like “My Angel” by Harry Cleven. The director debuts, meanwhile, went to “Aloys,” shot by Simon Guy Fässler and directed by Tobias Nölle.

The tradition of student involvement at Camerimage, part of the fest since its founding, was carried on with a Student Etudes Golden Tadpole for Jonathan Choo’s “Han,” shot by Rachel Liew, a silver honor for “Summer,” shot by Martyna Jakimowska and directed by Martyna Jakimowska and Karol Lindholm and a Bronze Tadpole for “Yahrzeit,” lensed by Arend Krause and directed by Thomas Eggel.

The TV Pilots award went to Steven Zaillian’s “The Beach” episode of “The Night Of,” with lensing called “gripping” neo-noir by Robert Elswit.

Ringan Ledwidge’s music video for Massive Attack, “Voodoo in my Blood,” shot by Franz Lustig, won this category, while the images of Martin Ruhe won the music video cinematography prize for the Mykki Blanco clip “Highschool Never Ends” by Matt Lambert.
