IS The whale of Darren Aronofsky the winning film Leoncino d’Oro, one of the most important and significant collateral prizes awarded each year at the Venice Film Festival. The group of young jurors from all over Italy chose the work that sees the protagonist Brendan Fraser with the following motivations:

“A heartbreaking humanity, masterfully interpreted, faces the desperate attempt at redemption, as heartbreaking as necessary. Friendship, religion, death and love are staged through the tormented search for sincerity in a claustrophobic atmosphere inspired by the play of the same name.
A ruthless film that represents a sincere invitation to reconciliation with others and especially with oneself. »

The jury then awarded the Cinema For UNICEF prize to the film Athena of Romain Gavras with the following motivations:

“A modern tragedy that materializes in a powerful crescendo of violence, where it becomes impossible to establish real responsibilities. The execution of an innocent child becomes a pretext for revolt. Hate and devastation are tearing apart an already fragile social fabric, in which it is precisely the young who take up arms. Discrimination, ghettoization and, above all, the lack of protection of the most basic human rights, are degenerating into a reality much closer than we could have ever imagined.

The award ceremony took place at 5:00 p.m. in the Sala degli Stucchi of the Hotel Excelsior, in the presence of Roberto Cicutto (President of La Biennale), Alberto Barbera (Director of the International Film Festival), Andrea Del Mercato (General Manager La Biennale), Luigi Lonigro (President of the Union of Film Publishers and Distributors).
They did the honors of the house Piera Detassis (President of the Italian Cinema Academy – David di Donatello Prize), Mario Lorin (Vice-president of AGIS and president of ANEC), Carmela Pace (President of Unicef ​​Italy), Simone Gialdini (General Manager Anec).
