Romanian movies win top prizes at Chicago Film Festival

Romanian movies Sieranevada and Graduation won top prizes at the 52nd Chicago International Film Festival, which is still ongoing in the American city, Romania-Insider reports.

Sieranevada, the latest film by Romanian director Cristi Puiu, won the Gold Hugo for Best Film, and the Silver Hugo Best Director awards in the international feature competition category.

“The registration of what seems to be reality instead of fiction on any level is shown as if it took no effort at all. This film is an incredible cinematic achievement and fully immerses the audience in a family gathering and makes us aware of them not only on a personal level but also embodies the spirit of the times we live in. The award for Best Film goes to Sieranevada by Cristi Puiu,” said the jury.

Sieranevada is Romania’s proposal for the Oscars in 2017, in the Best Foreign Language Film category.

Also, in the international feature competition category, Graduation, directed by Cristian Mungiu, won both the Silver Plaque Best Screenplay award and Silver Hugo Best Actor (Adrian Titieni).
