“All That Glitters” by Tomas Kudrna – best political film at Cinepolitica

“All That Glitters” by Tomas Kudrna received the Best Political Film Award of the Cinepolitica festival held in Bucharest, on June 15-21, organisers inform. The award was granted “for the humorous and humane way of treating an extremely actual environment issue that threatens the entire planet. Although the action of the movie is set in Kyrgyzstan, its theme practically reflects the global policy.” The award was granted to Rene Kubasek, the manager of the Czech Center. The Cinepolitica trophy, granted to the best achieved and most serious film of the contest, went to ‘Post Mortem,’ directed by Pablo Larrain. “The film is a courageous depiction of the violent coup against Pinochet, which shocked through the total lack of respect for life and death.” The Cinepolitica trophy was handed to the Chilean Ambassador in Bucharest, Eliana Cuevas Bernales. A special mention was granted to the documentary ‘The Boy Who Was a King,” directed by Andrey Paounov.The gala was followed by the projection of one of the best documentaries of these years, ‘Inside Job,’ directed by Charles Ferguson, launched in world premiere at the Cannes Festival, and an Academy Award winner in 2011. The Cinepolitica Festival was organised by the ‘Cultura si Imagine’ Association, with support from the National Center of Cinema, the Romanian Filmmakers Union and the National Peasant’s Museum of Bucharest.
