The Godfather´s Lover (The Accolade Competition Press Release)
Sven Alexander Heinrich Wins Accolade Competition
La Jolla, California, December 2, 2011 - Sven Alexander Heinrich, graduated student from the Centro de Capacitación Cinematográfica, has won a prestigious Award of Excellence from The Accolade Competition. The award was given for Sven Heinrich´s exciting short film, El Amante del Padrino (The Godfather´s Lover), which deals with the fate of a sect leader´s lover. This short film production features exceptional atmospheres and insights into disturbing spiritual contexts.
"I feel very honoured by the brave decision of the judging committee of the Accolade Competition to give The Godfather´s Lover such a recognized prize. My approach when shooting this short film was never commercial but merely oriented and inspired by strong personal concerns. I would love to contribute to a dawning of consciousness regarding our present conditions, which keep maintaining relevant the principal subject treated in Goethe´s Faust and in the biblical Exodus (second book of Moses, 32: the worshipping of the golden calf)."
