    Heli, a Film by Amat Escalante, CANNES winner in 2013!: 

    Heli, a Film by Amat Escalante, CANNES winner in 2013!

    Heartfelt congratulations go out to Bachelor’s Degree in Film and Television professor Lorenzo Hagerman, for his participation—as director of photography—on the Mexican film entitled Heli, nominated at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.

    According to a synopsis published by Mexico’s National Cinema Institute (IMCINE), Heli is the story of a twenty-four-year-old man who lives in a small town in central Mexico’s Bajío region, whose younger sister gets the entire family into terrible trouble.

    Here’s hoping we bring this important prize home!
