Semih Kaplano?lus Honey (Bal), the third part of his reverse-order trilogy after Egg and Milk, became only the second Turkish film to win the Golden Bear in Berlin.
The Turkish-German co-production, described by Screen Daily critic Lee Marshall as very beautiful and very studied, with a sometimes oppressive sense of directorial control, also earned the Ecumenical Jurys prize for best film in the competition. Susuz Yaz (Dry Summer) was the first Turkish film to win the Berlinales highest accolade in 1964.
The spirit of Roman Polanski loomed large over the Berlinale as the director was awarded the Silver Bear for best direction for The Ghost Writer. Polanski currently under house arrest in Switzerland where he faces possible extradition to the Us first won the Golden Bear more than 40 years ago in 1966 for Cul-de-Sac.

The Second "Kazakhstan Montage of Cinemas: Film & Cultural Festival" launches at the Directors Guild of America (DGA) in Los Angeles on Aug. 3 for a one-week celebration of Kazakh cinema and culture, including musicians.
The festival is a stellar opportunity for directors, producers, location scouts, and the general public to get an understanding and appreciation of this exotic locale without leaving home.
Sweeping from the Caspian Sea on its Russian border to the Altai Mountain range on the Chinese border, Kazakhstan has a rich nomadic history as well as a powerful current tapestry of cultures. Since gaining independence in 1991, the Central Asian Republic has embraced its remarkable filmmaking past that dates back to the 1930's, when Sergei Eisenstein made his classic Ivan the Terrible in this mystic land, and has even given rise to several "New Wave" movements.
Opening night on Aug. 3rd begins with a reception at 7 pm, and includes a program of live entertainment until 11 pm, at the DGA Theater.
Sponsored by Kazakh Geographic Society (KazGeo.kz ), helixfilmsinc.com , the Embassy of the Republic of Kazakhstan, and the Honorary Consulate of Kazakhstan in Los Angeles, the festival includes Advisory Board Members Steven-Charles Jaffe (GHOST, K19), David Marconi (Screenwriter, ENEMY OF THE STATE), and Ambassador Erlan Idrissov.
Tickets cost $10 (including free parking) can be purchased from the festivals website. "Kazakhstan Montage of Cinemas: Film & Cultural Festival 2012" will be held Aug. 3 - 9 at the Directors Guild of America on 7920 Sunset Blvd in Los Angeles, California
