"Your Beauty Is Worth Nothing" And "Aglaya" Win Top Awards At Antalya Film Festival

ANTALYA, Turkey, Oct. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- "Your Beauty is Worth Nothing," a film about an immigrant Turkish boy who struggles with his new life in Austria won the Best Film Award in the National Competition at the 49th Antalya Golden Orange Film Festival. The winners were announced at a Closing Night Gala on October 12, 2012.

This year's festival sent out a strong message for peace and against a possible intervention in the conflict in Syria. Many participants also spoke out for peace and tolerance and their films focused on important social issues like recognition of ethnic identities, women's rights, child abuse, gay rights and freedom of expression.

"This film is about a Turkish-Kurdish family and it's a film that doesn't take sides," said the director Huseyin Tabak, the German-born director of "Your Beauty is Worth Nothing." "It's on the side of humanity." The film also won the Best Screenplay, Best Supporting Actress, Best Editing awards and a Special Jury Prize.

"We don't want to fight with anyone. We don't want to fight with Syria," said Ali Adnan Ozgur, whose film "Children of the Land," about two children who take refuge in a village school won a Special Jury Prize.

In the International Competition, "Aglaya" a film by Hungarian director Krisztina Deak about a Romanian circus family who escape persecution in the 80s, won The Best Film Award and a Special Jury Prize.

"This is my first premiere and international festival and I'm very, very happy," said the director of "Aglaya" who applied to Antalya right after finishing her film. "This is a wonderful festival, and the organization and the events were very good."
