Yo Galgo has been awarded OUTSTANDING INTERNATIONAL DOCUMENTARY FILM at the Genesis Awards 2018, just announced by The Humane Society. We are so happy and thankful to you all, to the organization and those who put interest in the lives of the hunting galgos, cursed by their speed and used in the thousands. I have no words when seeing our humble film alongise such wonderful works. Thank you Sofie for taking us here, and thanks Arturo Cardelús for an amazing soundtrack, which has made our documentary universal. I hope we find inspiration towards a more inclusive world for other animals, nature, present and future. ¡Much Love!
