Terence Malick’s "To the Wonder" Awarded by SIGNIS in Venice 2012

Venice, September 8, 2012 (SIGNIS) - Terrence Malick’s latest film, To the Wonder, received the SIGNIS Award at the 69th Venice International Film Festival, as announced on September 8 in a ceremony held at the Sala Tropicana of the Excelsior Hotel in Venice’s Lido.

SIGNIS Award winner "To the Wonder" celebrates the mysteries of beauty, truth and love

The SIGNIS Jury was formed by Gustavo Andújar (Cuba), President, Massimo Giraldi (Italy), Secretary, and Arianna Prevedello (Italy), Edward Siebert, SJ (USA) and Mario Tapia (Ecuador), members. A total of eighteen feature films included in the official selection of the Festival were considered for the Award. In their citation, the Jury indicated:

"Technically rich and poetic in storytelling, To the Wonder is a stand-alone film which celebrates the mysteries of beauty, truth and love. It is a story of individuals who move through life with intense passion. At times, their passion gives way to desolation, making them acutely aware of their own weaknesses and limitations. Their experiences shed insight about the universal meaning of the joys and struggles of life. The film’s rich composition, textured direction, and its use of light bring together elements of divinity and humanity ultimately creating a sacramental experience which reveals God’s gift of unconditional love."

The general reception of the film by audiences in the Festival, as well as among film critics, was mixed, not unlike what happened with Malick’s previous film, The Tree of Life .

The Jury also decided to give a Special Commendation to the Israeli film Fill the Void , by Rama Burshtein.

The SIGNIS Jury in Venice

"The youngest daughter of an orthodox Jewish family is asked to change drastically the course of her life in the interest of the unity of her family. The story unfolds in a small community of strict religious observance, the customs and traditions of which are presented with great cinematic beauty and an outstanding sense of pride, acknowledging at the same time the complexity of the challenge of postponing personal aspirations for the good of others."

This year’s edition of the Venice International Film Festival, the 69th, marked the celebration of the 80th anniversary the Festival, making it the longest running international film festival en the world. The SIGNIS Award and its predecessor, the OCIC Award, have been presented at “la Mostra” -as its official Italian name designates it- since the fifth edition, held in 1948.
