The documentary “Ayotzinapa, el paso de la tortuga,” (Ayotzinapa: The Turtle’s Steps), produced by Guillermo del Toro and Bertha Navarro, which deals with the disappearance of 43 teaching students in Mexico four years ago, will compete at the Guanajuato International Film Festival (GIFF) starting on July 20.

Directed by Enrique García Meza, the film has already won the Audience Award at the Guaralajara Film Festival.

Hasta los dientes,’ (To the Teeth) a documentary by Alberto Arnaud; ‘M-1,’ made in cooperation with Bosnia, and Niebla de Culpa,’ (Fog of Guilt) made with Germany, will be some of its strongest competitors. There are 15 long-feature films and 33 short-films all made in Mexico,” stated Ana Lila Altamirano, director of Cultural Promotion at the Mexican Institute of Cinematography.

“They’re all very good, and this was a very careful selection,” added Sarah Hoch, director of the Guanajuato festival.

The GIFF will take place from July 20-29 in Guanajuato and San Miguel de Allende.

“There will be 342 films from 40 countries,” stated Hoch.

Mexican actress Pilar Pellicer (known for “Pedro Páramo”), and TV producer Carmen Armendáriz will be honored by the Women in Film and TV association, whereas Damián Alcázar (known for Herod’s Law) will receive the Silver Medal from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM)’s Film Archives for his long artistic trajectory.
