Melissa Leo (above, with Michael O’Keefe), who has recently won best actress honors at the Marrakech Film Festival, stars.

Stockholm Lifetime Achievement Award 2008: Charlotte Rampling (photo: Sara Shahbazi)

"For her impressive portrayals of some of the most memorable female characters in modern cinema. Some might be strong-willed, others more vulnerable, but they have all been depicted with intelligence and a precise feeling for their lives within. Few actors enter the big empty screen and inhabit it with the same grace, naturalness and confidence."

Wong Kar Wai

Stockholm Visionary Award 2008: Wong Kar Wai (photo: Mattias Lindbäck )

"Mr Wong Kar Wai is a visionary director that has moved audiences in every corner of the world with his cinematic language. He has a unique abilty to cast the creatures of the night in a romantic and moody light while capturing the beauty of the fleeting moment on the silver screen . It is an honor to present Mr Wong Kar Wai with the Stockholm Visionary Award for his continuous exploration of the labyrinth of the human heart in a search with no boundaries in time, space or form."
