FIPRESCI 90 Platinum Award: Edgar Reitz
Edgar Reitz. At the Bari International Film Festival (Italy, March 21-28, 2015), FIPRESCI celebrated its 90th anniversary with a series of masterclasses and award ceremonies dedicated to Alan Parker, Jean-Jacques Annaud, Costa-Gavras, Ettore Scola, Andrzej Wajda, Margarethe von Trotta and Nanni Moretti.
And to Edgar Reitz.
Motivation. “The Award for the 90th Anniversary of FIPRESCI goes to a film director and artist who, through his career, has been twice acknowledged by our association.
In 1984 at Venice with “Heimat – A Chronicle of Germany”
In 1992 once again at Venice with “Heimat 2 – Chronicle of a Generation”
A director who carved his career and entire life path out of memory and research, giving life to an epic narration of the history and destiny of a nation and its people, with the unprecedented saga of “Heimat”.
A tale began more than 30 years ago and amounting to 72 hours during which cinema transcends time and leads the audience through a journey of discovery through epochs, personalities, passions, emotions and memorable identities.
It is a true honor to confer the FIPRESCI 90 Award to Edgar Reitz: an extraordinary artist, intellectual and film director, who is able to get the meaning of time and the relevance of its narration, and to transform it into great cinema.”
