Mexico’s immigration-themed road movie The Golden Dream has won a slew of awards on the festival circuit, including Un Certain Regard prizes for director Diego Quemada-Diez and his cast of newcomers.
Argentine cult director Lisandro Alonso‘s Land of Plenty also won at Cannes, taking home the FIPRESCI international critics prize. Viggo Mortensen plays a 19th century army captain in search of his missing daughter in the wilds of South America.
The Fenix Awards were created to promote quality cinema hailing from 22 nations in Latin America and the Iberian Peninsula. Other films garnering multiple noms were Amat Escalante‘s drug war drama Heli, from Mexico; the Venezuelan dramedy Bad Hair (Pelo Malo); and Witching and Bitching (Las Brujas de Zugarramurdi), from Spanish director Alex de la Iglesia.
E! Entertainment Television will broadcast the ceremony live from Mexico City on Oct. 30.
