BEST NEW NARRATIVE DIRECTOR AWARD WINNER: MANOS SUCIAS
The Best New Narrative Director goes to Josef Wladyka for Manos Sucias:
Towing a submerged torpedo in the wake of their battered fishing boat, a desperate fisherman and naive kid embark on a journey
trafficking millions of dollars worth of cocaine.
Shot entirely on location along the Pacific coast
of Colombia—in areas that bear the indelible
scars of the drug trade—Manos Sucias refuses
to glamorize the drug trade but rather seeks to
offer a rare glimpse of its devastating effects.
Executive produced by Spike Lee.
