Golden Film for TIRZA

Golden Film Award for TIRZA

Dutch feature film TIRZA, directed by Rudolf van den Berg, has reached the status of Golden Film for more than 100.000 tickets sold after its theatrical release in The Netherlands on September 30, 2010.

The Golden/Platinum/Diamond Film Award is an initiative presented by the Netherlands Film Festival and the Netherlands Film Fund since 2001. The prize is intended to encourage the Dutch film industry and motivate the general public to go and see Dutch films. The total number of tickets sold after a film's release determines whether a prize is awarded.

TIRZA is produced by Fu Works (San Fu Maltha) and Cadenza Films (Jeroen Koolbergen) in coproduction with NTR (Marina Blok) and the Belgian producer Prime Time (Antonino Lombardo) and is based on the novel by Arnon Grunberg. The film opened the Netherlands Film Festival and was released in the Dutch cinema by Independent Films.

In TIRZA, Jörgen's world is crumbling. Forced into early retirement and harrassed by his ex-wife, the only part of his life which made sense - raising his beloved daughter, Tirza - is disrupted when she disappears on holiday in Namibia. After weeks of terrified uncertainty, Jörgen goes searching for her, but the heat, his drinking and bad memories combine to unhinge him. His only ally is a child prostitute called Kaisa. Together they journey into the wilderness on Tirza's trail and discover her fate.
