'Haditha' wins at Emden-Norderney fest

Surprise winner in two categories

COLOGNE, Germany -- Nick Broomfield's "Battle for Haditha," a dramatic re-enactment of a real-life massacre of Iraqi civilians by U.S. Marines, was the surprise winner of this year's Emden-Norderney film festival, taking the Bernhard Wicki prize for best film and the DGB Film prize for work that engages with social or political issues.

"Haditha" beat out Anand Tucker's family drama "And When Did You Last See Your Father?" for the top prize.

Kinowelt has acquired "Haditha" for German release.
