Citation For the cinematic exposition of the complexity when art, commerce and morality converge, leading to a sensational journey through pain and ultimately an inspiring discovery.

Synopsis: Until 1989, the village of Dafen in the city of Shenzhen was little more than a hamlet. It now has a population of 10,000 including hundreds of peasants – turned oil painters. Directors Yu Haib and Yu Kiki Tianqi followed one of the painters, Zaho Xiaoyong. He and his family have painted around 100,000 Van Goghs, so Zhao feels deep affinity with Van Gogh. Finally his lifelong dream of seeing originals in the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam is becoming the reality..

Jury: Asoka Handagama ( Chairman ) ( Sri Lanka )_ Sam Ho ( Member) ( China ( Hongkong ) Kira Kovalenko ( Member ) ( Russia )

Congratulations Bong Joon Ho

Congratulations to Bong Joon-ho TXmvGYanrJgMzRNgaSEK The victory of Parasite by Bong Joon-ho, at the 92nd Academy Awards (aka the Oscars), is a clear sign of global change. The history of cinema is being written on our eyes! For the first time, the most prestigious cinema awards were given to one film - the Palme d'Or at the 2019 Cannes Film festival, the Best Asian film at the Asia Pacific Screen Awards and the Oscars. For the first time, we see such unanimous acclaim of one film. Can we consider it as a real victory for Asian cinema? Yes surely, and Korean cinema that began its journey to victory in the beginning of 1980s has successfully arrived. Through this film, we understand that the world has become truly global, as are all the problems highlighted in it.
