Flanders Int'l Film Festival goes to 'Market'

Ben Hopkins' film centers on Turkish market trader

BRUSSELS -- "The Market," a German-Turkish co-production directed by Britain's Ben Hopkins, won the best film prize at the Flanders International Film Festival in Ghent on Wednesday.

The film centers on a young Turkish market trader in eastern Turkey, whose drinking and gambling drive him into the murky world of black market medicine.

Tolibhon Shahidi won the best music prize for the score of Samira Makhmalbaf's Iranian movie "Two-Legged Horse," best scenario went to writer-director Sylvie Verheyde for "Stella," and Bent Hamer won the director's prize for "O'Horten."
