The film Tlatelolco, Verano del 68 / Tlatelolco Summer of 68 (pictured) directed by Carlos Bolado was named winner of the Audience Award at the fifth year of the Hola Mexico Festival, chosen among 13 feature films and six documentaries by Mexican filmmakers.
Set in a city of great heroes as well as villains, Tlatelolco is a love story between two students of different social backgrounds. As the first developing country to host the Olympic Games in 1968, México City was under a magnifying glass. Under pressure, the Mexican government strove to advance the city and present it as stable, but a student movement confronted the government with riots and demonstrations. With characters from all walks of life, Tlatelolco is full of emotion and surprises. This epic love story is set against the backdrop of a time that remains controversial to date.
The Hola Mexico Festival took place during May 15 - 22nd in Los Angeles, California, dedicated to bringing the best in Mexican cinema, food and music.
