TEHILIM takes grand prize in Tokyo

Cannes competition title TEHILIM by Raphael Nadjari has been awarded at the TOKYO FILMEX with the prestigious Grand Prize. The competition jury, headed by director Lee Chang-dong, commented: "The film brings to the fore a universal problem of today's world - the lack of orientation. It is told in a personal style, which - as world cinema - transgresses borders and religions."
