54th San Francisco International Film Festival

54th San Francisco International Film Festival, USA (April 21 - May 5, 2011)

The FIPRESCI jury at the 54th San Francisco International Film Festival has chosen to award its prize to a movie with a very precise sense of place and character, yet which also makes a provocatively ambivalent statement about the value of work in the aftermath of local economic collapse: The Salesman, directed by Sebastien Pilote.
