Made in L.A. awarded Best Documentary at Cuenca International Women Film Festival

Cuenca , a beautiful town in Spain, just celebrated Mujeres en Dirección's second successful year as one of Spain's most important womens' film festivals. I had just been in Spain for Valladolid and was in between travels, so I wasn't able to attend the festival. But the good news - that Made in L.A. won best documentary - came by e-mail, and my parents, who had arrived that same day from a trip to Argentina, went to Cuenca to receive the award on my behalf.

As it turns out my father kept making jokes throughout the speech (very much in the family style) so afterwards I received e-mails complementing me for having such great parents and wonderful ambassadors...

Here are a few photos:
