CANNES – A documentary using small clay figurines to tell the story of how Cambodian filmmaker Rithy Panh’s family perished under the Khmer Rouge regime won the top prize in the second most important competition at the Cannes film festival on Saturday.
L’Image Manquante (The Missing Picture) was among the 18 films that premiered in the Un Certain Regard category that was set up to encourage emerging and innovative filmmakers and run alongside the main competition at the world’s top film festival.
Panh, 49, a prolific filmmaker whose films concentrate on the brutality in Cambodia when an estimated 1.7 million people were killed during the 1975-79 Khmer Rouge regime, said the prize was important for his country.
For a country that has emerged from its difficulties and years of war, it is important to say we are still alive,” Panh told Reuters after receiving his award at a red carpet ceremony in the French Riviera resort.
The jury led by Danish director Thomas Vinterberg, whose film Jagten (The Hunt) won Mads Mikkelsen the best actor award at Cannes last year, described the documentary as one of the most powerful films I have seen in many years”.
The runner-up was Omar by Palestinian director Hany Abu-Assad, a political thriller involving Palestinians living under Israeli occupation in which a young baker, Omar, is tortured by Israel’s secret police to betray his friends.
Omar, which was shot in the West Bank and Israeli-Arab town of Nazareth last year, received a standing ovation at its premiere as the first film fully funded by the Palestinian cinema industry.
It is the only festival that I think still cares about different films,” said Abu-Assad, known for the 2005 award-winning film Paradise Now, as he received his award.
Another director in Un Certain Regard to get a standing ovation was Iran’s Mohammad Rasoulof who was jailed in 2010 for anti-regime propaganda but came to Cannes this year with Manuscripts Don’t Burn, shot in secret in his home country.

The Indian Mystical Singer of the 14th Century Meerabai (1498 -1547) was a Rajput princess born in Kurki a small village near Merta which is in the Nagaur district in Rajasthan. Her father was Ratan Singh Rathore who was a warrior of the Rathore clan. Her Mothers Name is not mentioned or known in any of the biography of Meerabai. Her mother was supportive of Meerabais religious tendencies but her mother died early.
When Meerabai was just six years old, her mother gave her an image of Krishna, with whom she would talk every day and night. Krishna became an integral part of Meera’s life. Meerabai was married to Prince Bhoj Raj at very early age. The new family did not approve of her devotion to Krishna as Meerabai refused to worship their family deity, and she would say that she was only truly married to Krishna. Meerabai lost her husband at very early age in the year 1527 in a battle against the Sultanate.
Meerabais devotion at first was confined to her and within the house, but at some time during her devotion she would be carried away with the joy and love for Krishna that she would dance away on the streets of the city singing the songs of praises and love for Krishna. Meerabai would get so engrossed in worshipping Krishna that she would forget herself. She has in that trance state created such beautiful writing which was the reflection of her heart. Meerabais poem and other composition reveal the different stages and experiences of her life. The prayer songs that she composed are still popular among the worshippers today.

Also what happened to Meerabai is a mystery. People still have a question as to how and where did Meerabai die. But as per the legend goes and the belief of the people Meeras unconditional love and devotion for Krishna, she vanished in the temple of Krishna in Dwarka. It is

Tips to get Celebrity Bouffant Looks..!! Ah the bouffant. Although some of us would have like to see it stuck back in the 50s, celebrities including Gwen Stefani and Rachel McAdams seem to think otherwise with many going for this hairstyle, first inspired by the likes of Bridget Bardot, at events. And it looks as though this trend will continue with the red carpet season on its way. As a result we’ve taken a -if you can’t beat them, join them,- approach to the style. To get that bouffant just right you’ll need to have a bit of grease so wash your hair the night or day before you attempt this style. Remove the excess water, and comb out your wet hair with a large tooth comb before applying some mousse or gel and then roughly blowdry. On the day allow an hour or two for the style. Section your hair into 5 parts, one for each side, two for the back and one for the top. Starting in the lowest section of the back take small 1′ sections, comb out smooth, spray light with your hair spray and curl with your curling iron or rollers. Pin each curl in place with a pin. Continue this for your whole head apart from your fringe. Once this is done begin removing the pins, starting from the first curl and then back comb the top back centre before putting it into a ponytail. Do this to 2-3 more sections surrounding this centre ponytail. Now, take a section of the back of your hair, about 1/4 of the remainder, and pin onto the base of your ponytails. Then take the curls on the outside and pin them where you would like them to lay. Try bring them close to the center but make sure to cover any rubber bands or bobby pins from earlier. Once this is done take the center curls and try to place ontop of the curls already pinned in place.
