In the Name Of The Son by Vincent Lannoo takes the Siver Méliès at Neuchâtel

In the name of the son by Vincent Lannoo wins the Silver Méliès to the best European film

Saturday July 13th – In the name of the son by Belgian director Vincent Lannoo won the Silver Méliès to the best european film during the ceremony of the 13th Neuchâtel international Fantastic Film Festival.

Released early April in Belgium, the film had its international premiere end of June at the Karlovy Vary international film festival.

The film tells the story of Elisabeth (Astrid Whettnall) a mother who’s running a radio show on "Christian Hope Radio". But neither her faith, nor "Christian Hope Radio", nor love will prevent Elisabeth from falling into the limbo of reality. The lies of her husband, the silence of the church and the denial of those closest to her will cause her to embark upon a violent crusade. A crusade that will be marked by doubt.
Produced by Yoni productions, In the name of the son is sold woldwide by Intramovies.
Neuchâtel international Fantastic Film Festival attributes every year the Silver Méliès Award for the best European fantastic feature film. Organised by the members of the European Federation of Fantastic Film Festivals (EFFFF), this competition awards the film that will compete for the Golden Melies in October at the Sitgès fantastic Film Festival.
