Dead Girl Took the 33rd Deauville American Film Fest 's Top Honor


The flick won the Grand Prize at the yearly festival with Gina Kim's drama "Never Forever" being awarded the Jury Prize.

Presenting a riveting depiction on how violence contaminates otherwise ordinary lives, Karen Moncrieff-directed four-chapter tale "The Dead Girl" was announced to be the winner of the Grand Prize at the 33rd edition of the annually-held Deauville American Film Festival on Sunday, September 9, 2007.

Expressing her deep gratitude for the honor, a semi-stunned Moncrieff in a touching nod to slain filmmaker Adrienne Shelly said, "My film is about violence, and one of the filmmakers is not with us because she was a victim of violence." Shelly's final work "Waitress" was well received in the competition, being previously subjected to glowing critical reviews at this year's Sundance Film Festival.

Jury Prize went to Gina Kim's drama feature "Never Forever", which presents a story of a Caucasian housewife who finds a novel solution when her Korean-American husband proves sterile. Meanwhile the International Critic's Prize was handed to James C. Strouse's "Grace Is Gone" with Jeffrey Blitz's "Rocket Science" taking the Cartier Revelation Prize.
