BlazHoffski and Gideon Levy win prestigious ‘Prix Europe’ and start exclusive cooperation.
In 2009 Gideon Levy and BlazHoffski have won the prestigious “Prix Europe” prize for the film Lockerbie Revisited in the TV Current Affairs category.
His widely acclaimed film on the investigation into the Lockerbie case is attracting media attention worldwide. The film has been screened twice in the Scottish Parliament and paints a chilling picture of the way the CIA, FBI and the Scottish police have conducted the Lockerbie investigation. The film shows that evidence was tampered with. As a result of the issues exposed in the film, serious questions continue to be raised in the Scottish Parliament highlighting the possible miscarriage of justice. Mr Megrahi was recently released on compassionate grounds, as he is terminally ill. He is presently in Libya where he continues to protest his innocence. The film has been sold to France Germany, Poland and Spain, and was produced by BlazHoffski for the Dutch public network, VPRO and ARTE/ZDF.
Citation by the Jury
"The winning entry sheds light on the investigation and verdict in a spectacular case, and manages to do so in a surprisingly charming and humorous matter. The Director doesn’t take no for an answer, his way of approaching and – if answers are not good enough – questioning and insisting, surprised and amused the jury on more than one occasion. Most impressive by far is one very simple idea: The Director makes his interview partners, among them key investigators from CIA and FBI, promise on camera to tell him the truth and nothing but the truth."
