Alfonso Zarauza scores at Viña del Mar

Galician director Alfonso Zarauza received the Paoa award to the best director at Chilean Viña del Mar International Film Festival for his opera prima A Noite que deixou de chover, which also participated at the international feature films official section.

A Noite que deixou de Chover, kind of Galician interpretation of Sofia Coppola’s Lost in Traslation, is a love story that portraits a poetic and bohemian Santiago de Compostela.

Congratulations Alfonso!
