Alonso Ruizpalacios’ ‘Gueros’ Tops Los Cabos Festival

15 November 2014 10:39 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico – Appropriately for a festival that in part sets out to showcase new Mexican talent to the U.S. and Canada, Alonso Ruizpalacios’ feature debut “Güeros” – sold by Mundial, a joint venture of Im Global and Canana – won the top award at the 3rd Los Cabos Festival.

Presented by Diego Luna, the award was made at the Saturday’s closing gala ceremony where “Captive” star Rosario Dawson presented a tribute to Canadian auteur Atom Egoyan, calling him “evisceratingly smart.”

Ceremony segued into a gala screening of Richard Linklater’s “Boyhood,” with Ellar Coltrane and Lorelei Linklater in attendance.

Gustavo Gamou’s “El regreso del muerto,” about the twilight years of a former hitman, received a special mention, as did Carlos Marques-Marcet’s “10,000 Km.”

Witherspoon, Odile, Ebert Center Attention at Los Cabos

14 November 2014 8:27 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Los Cabos – Two forces of nature – Reese Witherspoon, and the far less benevolent hurricane Odile – took center stage at the opening ceremony of the 3rd Los Cabos Festival, along with the slaughter of 43 students in Ayotzinapa and a posthumous prize for the late great Roger Ebert.

Witherspoon presented Jean-Marc Valle’s true-event-based “Wild,” which saw its Latin American premiere at Los Cabos

Appropriately for a festival which has positioned itself as a meeting place for the Canadian, U.S. and Mexican industries, in “Wild,” Witherspoon plays Cherly Strayed, a woman who sought catharsis from her mother’s death and divorce walking the Pacific Crest Trail from Canada to the Mexican border.

“This movie is very close to my heart,” Witherspoon said on stage.

“I optioned the book. This is Cheryl Strayed story .I was so moved about by the book that I knew immediately I had to turn it into a film. »
