Carmen meets Borat wins 'Gran Premio Lessinia'

The feature-length documentary film CARMEN MEETS BORAT by Mercedes Stalenhoef has been awarded the 'Lessinia Gold' Gran Premio Lessinia at the Film Festival Della Lessinia in Italy.

The jury of festival: "With an attentive eye, the director observes the residents of a Romanian village and calmly records their strengths and weaknesses. Nothing escapes her. The film is nog only a masterfully rendered drama about dreams betrayed by a family, but also a criticism of the big-time film industry that totally ignores human values. This is a film that makes us laugh and cry."

The presentation of the Award was at the 29th of August in Italy.
