1 MADRE Final

Madre wins a Gold Hugo

22 October, 2016

Wonderful news from Chicago! Momento Film’s MADRE, directed by Simón Mesa Soto won a Live Action Gold Hugo in the short film category. We congratualte Simón and the whole team.
Motivation: “Madre is a powerful portrayal of the emotional trauma and desperation of a teenage girl exploited by the porn industry. The film masterfully depicts the innocence and the desperation of the young girl, her inner pain, and the brutality of the business with a subtle quiet intimate approach, (and minimal use of actors and settings) through beautiful cinematography that moves from brightness towards darkness as the film concludes with the girl’s moments of realization. For this we award the Gold Hugo to Madre by Simon Mesa Soto.”
