Philippine film "The Woman Who Left", a revenge tale shot in black and white by director Lav Diaz, won the top Golden Lion prize at the Venice Film Festival on Saturday. "I want to dedicate this film to the Filipino people and their struggle, and humanity's struggle," Diaz said as he received the award. Holding his Lion aloft, the man behind Melancholia (2008) and Century of Birthing (2011) thanked the jury, lead this year by British director Sam Mendes, who said the 20 films in competition had proved to be of "a wonderful, astonishing variety".
