''Dahomey'' Wins Golden Bear at Berlin Film Festival

"Dahomey," a documentary about returning looted African artifacts, has won the 2024 Berlin International Film Festival top prize, the Golden Bear.

Filmmaker Mati Diop received the Golden Bear Prize for her film Dahomey for Best Film Award.

"Dahomey" follows the journey of plundered artifacts taken by French colonial troops in 1892, being sent from Paris to the Republic of Benin and the impact of their return.

Kenyan-Mexican actor Lupita Nyong’o served as the Berlinale’s first black jury president at this year’s festival. The Oscar was joined on the jury by actor-directors Brady Corbet and Jasmine Trinca and directors Ann Hui, Christian Petzold and Albert Serra alongside Ukrainian writer Oksana Zabuzhko.
