A STREET IN PALERMO awarded at the prestigious Goteborg festival

The Ingmar Bergman International Debut Award

Director Emma Dante is the recipient of the Ingmar Bergman debutant award for her film A Street in Palermo (Via Castellana bandiera).

"An everyday incident grows into a matter of life and death when two mortally determined women fight for supremacy in a Sicilian neighbourhood. In Emma Dante's divine comedy, Hell is just around the corner. Respect! for a superbly handled treatment of a story about human pettiness, in which a sense of place and timing are equally important."

The jury consists of Andrej Zvjagintsev, director, Russia, Claire Simon, director, France, and Jannike Åhlund, artistic director of the Bergman week
