The prizes are starting to come fast and furious here in Cannes. The Un Certain Regard jury has just given its top prize to Hungarian director Kornél Mundruczó’s White God, a buzzed about cautionary tale that features a gang of stray dogs who seize an opportunity to escape from a pound and revolt against mankind. The Jury Prize went to Swedish film Turist from director Ruben Oestlund with a Special Prize reserved for Wim Wenders and Juliano Ribeiro Salgado’s documentary The Salt Of The Earth. Party Girl, the French debut feature that opened the section, was awarded the Ensemble Prize. It hails from writer/directors Marie Amachoukeli, Claire Burger and Samuel Theis. David Gulpilil was named Best Actor for his role in Rolf de Heer’s Charlie’s Country. Earlier today, Jauja by Lisandro Alonso was honored by international critics group FIPRESCI with its UCR prize. Pablo Trapero was president of the jury which said the section testified to the diversity and vitality of filmmaking in the world today.
