At Chicken & Egg Pictures we are sending egg-stra special congratulations to 2020 Chicken & Egg Award recipient Maite Alberdi. The trail of success for her 2020 Academy® nominated film The Mole Agent, prods. Maite Alberdi and Marcela Santibanez, continued through this fall.
The film received an award for Best Iberoamerican Film by the Mexican Academy of Arts and Motion Pictures (Academia Mexicana de Artes y Ciencias Cinematográficas), one of the most important film awards in Latin America and better known as “the Ariel.” The Mole Agent also received two Platino Awards (Premios Platino) for Best Iberoamerican Documentary, and the Film in Education and Values award. During her acceptance speech, Maite made powerful remarks about the documentary field, “Documentaries are movies, just like all of them, only we work with reality as raw material. The Mole Agent seems like a fictional film thanks to a team capable of exploring new cinematographic forms.”
In October, Micromundo Producciones, founded and directed by Maite, celebrated the ten year anniversary of their first film The Lifeguard with a brand new website, which includes a video on demand channel with all of her films available worldwide.
We cannot wait to see the new windows to different worlds that you will show us.
