13 August 2016 9:33 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lima – Colombian helmer Felipe Guerrero’s feature debut “Oscuro Animal” (“Dark Beast”) snagged both the best film prize and int’l critics award at the 20th Lima Film Festival, which wrapped Saturday. The Gema Films-Mutokino co-production is on a winning streak, having just won the top awards at the March 2016 Guadalajara Int’l Film Fest, including Best Ibero-American Film, director and actress for all three actresses in the nearly dialogue-free triptych.

At the closing ceremony, transmitted live on TV Peru, a tearful Gema Juarez-Allen of Gema Films thanked the film’s crew, its three actresses and the film funds which helped get the film made.

The official selection jury comprised of Ciro Guerra, Karim Ainouz, Daniela Michel, Ezequiel Acuna and Alonso Cueto also awarded Kleber Mendonca Filho’s 1940s-set drama “Aquarius” of Brazil with a special jury prize and a best actress award to Sonia Braga for her performance in the pic. »
