Egoyan’s "Adoration" Wins Ecumenical Prize in Cannes 2008

Cannes, May 25, 2008 (SIGNIS/Interfilm) - At the 61st Cannes Festival, the Ecumenical Jury awarded its Prize to the film Adoration by Atom Egoyan, Canada.

"Simon, an adolescent with a complex family history, attempts to create his identity while overcoming cultural stereotypes. His invented personal story, which he presents to his class, explodes in Internet forums. He must contend both emotionally and intellectually with the issues raised. Using a poetic cinematography, the director presents traditional and contemporary symbols and objects to invite us to re-evaluate existing clichés about the Other or that which is foreign in our own culture and religion."

It is the second time that Atom Egoyan is awarded by the Ecumenical Jury in Cannes. He won the Prize in 1997 with The Sweet Hereafter .

The Ecumenical Jury was composed of René Aucourt (France, President), Alyda Faber (Canada), Margrit Frölich (Germany), Marie-Thérèse Kreidy (Lebanon), Lukas Jirsa (Czech Republic) and Joël Baumann (France).
