As I have mentioned in previous years, I’m no fan of Sundance as most award winning films and/or in competition when finally I’m able to watch them I don’t enjoy them. Obviously there are some exceptions and hopefully this year I will find some and for starters I know will like Zona Sur, congratulations to Bolivia!!!

By the way, Mexican Amat Escalante also won an award and support for a film he expects to film within the next two years; not even him is able to explain what's all about. I know I will watch it!!!
