The people have spoken, and they’re all about Ciro Guerra’s latest project.

Meanwhile, Andrés Kaiser proved to be the night’s big winner, taking home three prizes for the Mexican filmmaker’s thriller/mockumentary sweeping the Mexico Primero categories.

The black-and-white film, set somewhere in Mexico’s Oaxacan mountains, won the Cinemex Prize, the Premio FIPRESCI and the Art Kingdom Award.

The film, selected as Colombia’s entry for the Best Foreign Language Film race at the 91st Academy Awards, chronicles the early days of illegal drug trading in Colombia.

The crafted 1970s tribal mobster epic depicts how a Wayuu family is torn apart by Colombia’s early drug trade.
