Director Kim Nguyen
According to the jury, Rebelle is a successful love story displayed against the backdrop of war. The subject, life in rebel camps, which usually leaves a feeling of unrest among the public, however, highlights the hopes of a continent for peace.
We congratulate Kim Nyugen with his award.
On behalf of the World Cinema Amsterdam organization we would like to thank all visitors for giving their vote. We hope to see you again next year. The next edition will take place from 7 to 18 August 2013.
