2005-08-16

 

Following the successful festival career of director Yilmaz Arslan's two previous films, Fratricide, a dark tale of immigration and Turkish Diaspora in today's Germany, won the Silver Leopard for second best film at the 58th Locarno International Film Festival 2005.

Child-Actor Xevat Gectan received a Special Mention from the Jury for his outstanding performance.

Arslan's first film, Langer Gang, had won the best first film award at the 1992 San Sebastian Film Festival while his second film, Yara, was selected at the 55th Venice International Film Festival in 1998. Wild Bunch is handling sales for Fratricide.
