The Artist (a film I enjoyed as a novelty project but could not get really excited about) scoops the big prizes. But I was watching the Best Foreign Film category and, yes, the marvellous Iranian film, A Separation,wins.
An attempt to map some of the features of the cultural landscape while challenging the current orthodoxy that culture and faith inevitably exist in opposition. The Invisible Province seeks to show that modern culture cannot sever itself from questions of transcendence and faith and nor can faith distance itself from culture. In surveying the fault lines between culture and faith, The Invisible Province reimagines this relationship and suggests avenues for mature dialogue.
