César Díaz wins the Caméra d’Or for his debut film Nuestras Madres (Our Mothers).
The award for the best first film was awarded by the Jury headed by Cambodian director Rithy Panh. The Caméra d’Or adds up to two other prizes which were given to Nuestras Madres earlier during the festival: the SACD (Authors Society) prize, and the Grand Rail d’Or.
Entirely filmed in Guatemala, with a crew from Guatemala, Mexico, France and Belgium, Nuestras Madres (Our Mothers) is set in the aftermath of Guatemala’s civil war. Ernesto (Armando Espitia), a young anthropologist works at the forensic foundation. One day, through an old lady’s testimony, he thinks he found a lead that will allow him to find his father, a guerrillero disappeared during the war.

Best canine performance in a film at Cannes.
Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood by director Quentin Tarantino has won the prestigious award. The movie has particularly touched the jury, all experienced professionals of the film industry. Brandy, the beautiful pit bull in the film stole the hearts of the jury and the spotlight from her fellow actors: Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Margot Robbie.
Three dogs actually played Brandy’s role in the movie. Their names were Sayuri, Cerberus, and Siren.
