STOCKHOLM (AP) - The Stockholm Film Festival will give this year’s lifetime achievement award to Swedish director Jan Troell for what organizers say is his artistic ability to document “the essential” in a more than four decades-long career.
Making his feature film debut in 1966 with “Here’s Your Life,” Troell quickly rose to prominence after dramatizing Swedish writer Vilhelm Moberg’s novels “The Emigrants” and “The New Land.” They told the story of a poor Swedish family’s move to America in search of a better life and earned Troell and his team several Oscar nominations.
He will receive the award at a Stockholm ceremony during the Nov. 7-18 film festival.
