Cannes+logo.jpgIn the special category of Un Certain Regard, Arirang and Halt Auf Freier Strecke (Stopped On Track) tied for the top prize. Elsewhere, the Special Jury Prize went to Elena and directing prize went to Mohammad Rasoulof for Be Omid E Didar (Au Revoir). It's a bittersweet consolation for Rasoulouf, who, along with director Jafar Panahi, was sentenced to a six-year jail term by the Tehran government for "propagandizing against the regime." [Deadline]
