Elina Psykou’s sophomore film won the top prize of the International Narrative Feature Competition of the 16th edition of the Tribeca Film Festival, which began on April 19 and ends on April 30.
The jury -Willem Dafoe (president), Peter Fonda, Tavi Gevinson, Alessandro Nivola and Ruth Wilson- prefaced the announcement with the following: “When we were watching these movies we were looking for something we hadn’t seen before. We unanimously agree that one film challenged us to see in a new way, and we were seduced by the surprising humanity of its difficult characters. The direction was assured, and its tone unique, and we look forward to seeing Elina Psykou’s next work. The Best International Narrative Feature Award goes to ‘Son of Sofia.’”
