Czech-German film wins Bavarian awards

The Czech-German film, Habermann’s Mill, scooped two awards at the Bavarian film awards on Friday. Slovak director Juraj Herz was awarded the director’s prize and Mark Waschke the prize for best actor. The film, which should be released in the Czech Republic in March, traces how the life of a rich Sudeten saw mill owner is transformed by the crisis of 1938 and then the war. The Bavarian film awards are recognised as the second most prestigious in Germany.
