“Arde Madrid”, Platinum for best Ibero-American film series

 Playa del Carmen (Mexico), .- The Spanish series “Arde Madrid” won this Sunday the Platinum Award for the best Ibero-American film miniseries or teleserie in the sixth edition of these Ibero-American film awards, held in the Mexican Caribbean Riviera Maya .

“This project has been hard and intense but also rewarding, thanks to Movistar +, this shows that there is life after Netflix,” said Paco León, director of the series together with Anna R. Costa, when collecting the statuette.

“Arde Madrid” was a series produced in 2018 by Movistar +, which was very well received by the public and the critics, but recently it was learned that there will be no second season by decision of the creators themselves.

Among its cast are some of the most outstanding young actors in Spain, such as Inma Cuesta, Paco León and Anna Castillo.

The production narrates the life of the actress Ava Gadner during her residence in Madrid in the 60s of the 20th century from the perspective of her domestic employees, which reflects the Madrid life of that time, in which, despite being persecuted by the Francoism, yes there was the “Dolce Vita” for foreign artists.

The 6th edition of the Ibero-American Film Platinum Awards takes place at the Gran Tlachco Theater of the Xcaret Ecotourism Park, located in the Mayan Riviera of the Mexican Caribbean, which hosts these awards for the second consecutive year.

The Oscar-winning “Roma”, by Mexican Alfonso Cuarón, started as a favorite with nine nominations.

The Mexican film competes with the Spanish “Campeones”, the Uruguayan “La noche de 12 años” and the Colombian “Pájaros de verano”, whose directors -Javier Fesser, Álvaro Brechner and Cristina Gallego and Ciro Guerra- are also nominated.

The Platinum are promoted by the Rights Management Entity of Audiovisual Producers (Egeda), together with the Ibero-American Federation of Cinematographic and Audiovisual Producers (Fipca), and have the objective of promoting Ibero-American cinema. (EFE)
