"lo sono Li" has won the 2012 LUX Prize, the EP's film award which aims to promote European films and culture and stimulate public debate about European values. The film by Andrea Segre explores the problems of immigration and conflict between belonging to a traditional community and individual aspiration. For the first time ever, the three shortlisted films for the LUX Prize are being screened in all member states.
A selection panel, consisting of film experts, picked the three finalists for this year's LUX Prize from ten preselected entries. MEPS then voted for their favourite film, which received the LUX Prize.
In addition to providing distributors with subtitles in the 23 official EU languages for the winning film and versions for the visually and hearing impaired, the LUX Prize also offers an incentive for the film's promotion throughout the EU.
