EDN Congratulates! 'Gods of Mexico' Receives Los Cabos Work in Progress Award


EDN congratulates! is a series of news stories where we congratulate documentary teams from EDN workshops when they have achieved great results. In this edition of EDN congratulates! we are delighted to announce that 'Gods of Mexico', directed by Helmut Dosantos, received the Los Cabos Work in Progress Award (Los Cabos International Film Festival). 'Gods of Mexico' previously participated as a project in the EDN Pitching Workshop Lisbon Docs.

Still from Gods of Mexico by Helmut Dosantos

Keeping track of how projects and finished films are doing is of great importance not only to filmmakers but also to the European Documentary Network, especially when projects have been developed or pitched at EDN workshops.

We are therefore delighted to report that Helmut Dosantos' Gods of Mexico brought home the Los Cabos Work in Progress Award. The project was previously co-developed at the EDN pitching workshop Lisbon Docs. The award had been presented at the Los Cabos International Film Festival which annually hosts an important industry event in Mexico.

Gods of Mexico | Los Cabos Work in Progress Award

Awarded at Los Cabos International Film Festival

Director, Producer: Helmut Dosantos

Production Company (MEX): Fulgura Frango

Co-producer (USA): Narvalus Films

Synopsis: GODS OF MEXICO is a creative documentary that delves into ways of resistance to modernization in rural Mexico. It is a tribute to those people who strive to preserve their cultural identity. We will explore this “Lost Atlantis” where countless possibilities of existence continue to resist in the shadow, against that kind of progress which- striding at a fast pace- clouds any critical consideration on the values to follow.


The EDN team wholeheartedly congratulates the project team of Gods of Mexico on their success and the recognition of their work.
