Roman Polanski film receives award in Poland

Filmmaker Roman Polanski received an award and printed their hands in plaster for the passage of star of independent film in Krakow, the city where a court weighs an extradition request from the United States against it.

Polanski on Friday attended the opening of the 8th edition of the film festival Off Camera PKO and received the “Upstream” for independence in the art. The filmmaker, who spent his childhood in Krakow, joked he was happy to be winning there “finally”.

In February, the Academy Award-winning director appeared before a court in the city in a hearing relating to a US request for his extradition to that country, where he faces charges of having sex with a minor, a case that it has pursued since 1977.
