Chilean documentary ‘Malqueridas’ awarded at Cannes Docs

    Four Chilean films in their editing stage were part of Docs-in-Progress Showcase Chile at Cannes Film Festival’s market Marché du Film’s Cannes Docs; Notes for a film, The Fabulous Gold Harvesting Machine, Asteroid 2518, and the awarded Malqueridas, were part of it. This was the third time Chile has been invited with Chiledoc organizing the participation.

    At the event, Malqueridas received the Alphapanda Award, and is the first feature film directed by Tana Gilbert and is produced by Paola Castillo (Genoveva, Frontera) from Errante Producciones, in co-production with Germany’s Dirk Manthey Film UG. The documentary portrays a group of female inmates who reconstruct their motherhood experiences from prison using videos and photographs taken with forbidden cellphones.

    The second time a Chilean film (Lemebel, 2017) has been awarded at Docs-in Progress, the award will now consist of two private advice sessions on cinematographic marketing and social media offered by Alphapanda.
