Film alum Sebastian Leda won a Gold Lion award at the 57th Annual Cannes International Advertising Festival over the weekend for a television spot he directed for the agency Conill Saatchi & Saatchi. Created for the Consulate General of Argentina in Los Angeles, the gold-winning 30-second commercial focuses on Argentina’s football team, which at the time, had not been performing well (the World Cup has certainly changed that!)
“Crying” was among the most acclaimed of the festival, receiving thunderous applause during its screening. Check it out for yourself:
A warm congrats for this prestigious award, Sebastian!
