Shun Li and the Poet wins the LUX Prize

The winner of the 2012 LUX Prize has been announced! The news came at the end of a ceremony during a European Parliament plenary session in Strasbourg on Wednesday, November 21. The respective directors of all three finalist films attended, but in the end it was Italian director Andrea Segre who won the competition with Shun Li and the Poet (supported by Eurimages) or the moving story of an impossible friendship between two poetic souls that cultures oppose.
This Italy-France co-production was chosen by the members of European Parliament over Bence Fliegauf's Just the Wind (also supported by Eurimages) and Miguel Gomes' Tabu.
All three films selected as finalists for the LUX Prize have been awarded subtitles in the 23 official languages of the European Union, as well as a 35 mm film copy for each member state from the European Parliament. As LUX Prize finalists, they were screened in several important film festivals and at the LUX Film Days across Europe.
