French documentary film maker and producer Claude Lanzmann will be awarded the Honorary Golden Bear for lifetime achievement at the 63rd Berlin International Film Festival. There will be a special homage screening session for Lanzman’s films at the Berlinale which will screen ‘Israel', 'Why’, ‘A Visitor from the Living’ and ‘The Karski Repor’. The award ceremony will be inaugurated with the screening of Lanzman’s film ‘Sobibor’.

Lanzmann made his first documentary, ‘Israel, Why’ in 1973 on the necessity of Israel’s founding from the Jewish perspective. His second film, Shaoh, is a nine and a half hour documentary on the genocide of European Jews by the Nazis. The film brought him international acclaim and was referred to as an “unparalleled masterpiece of commemorative culture”. The film was screened at the Berlinale Forum in 1986. Lanzmann’s next two films, Tsahal and Sobibor, 14 octobre 1943, 16 heures were screened at the Berlinale Forum 1995 and Berlinale Forum 2002, respectively.
