“Rabin, The Last Day” won the “Cinepolitica” 2016 Trophy

“Cinepolitica” Trophy, the great award of the festival, offered by the Romanian Cultural Institute, was granted to “Rabin, The Last Day”, “for the exceptional quality of a cinematographic autopsy.”

The fifth edition of the Cinepolitica International Festival ended on Sunday, April 17, with the premiere of the movie called “Copilăria unui lider/ The Childhood of a Leader”, which represents the debut of the actor Brady Corbet as a film director, being an ambitious, noisy and controversial project. Inspired by the childhood of many dictators of the 20th century, the movie consists in a threatening portrait of the growing Evil.

Yuriy Bikov’s Russian production “Durak” was awarded “The best political movie”, for “its’ powerful story – the ordinary man’s fight against the corrupt and petty system -, but also for the exceptional cinematographic level of the whole production”.

A special mention was awarded to “Les Chevaliers Blancs” (directed by Joachim Lafosse), a powerful drama, inspired from a real case which shocked France in 2007: kidnapping over 100 children from Chad by the well-meaning members of a French NGO.
