Gabriel Ripstein’s debut film “600 Miles” wins first feature award at Berlin

Gabriel Ripstein’s debut film was awarded the first feature award at Berlin’s 65th Film Festival. Although this is Gabriel’s first film, he has been around the film industry for quite some time. He is the son of one of Mexico’s most celebrated Directors, Arturo Ripstein. Although Arturo Ripstein has mainly worked in the Mexican film industry, his son Gabriel ventured to the north (like his other fellow directors: Cuarón, Del Toro and Iñárritu), to tell a story that touches upon the relationship between Mexico and the US, as well as some other subjects.

The award comes with a €50,000, which is to be split between the producer and the director of the winning film.

I have not seen the film yet, but the trailer sure looks promising.
