A grant was awarded to NATALIA ALMADA for a documentary entitled El General.

El General is a feature-length film about the conflicting history Almada inherited as the great-granddaughter of one of Mexico's most controversial figures and the socio-economic injustice that has prevailed from the Revolution of 1910 to the present.
