Natalia Almada, director of the upcoming P.O.V. film El General, won the directing award for U.S. documentary at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival. Her film–a co-production with Altamura Films and ITVS in association with Latino Public Broadcasting–looks at the legacy of Almada’s great-grandfather, former Mexican President Plutarco Elias Calles. Almada’s film El Otro Lado, about drug traffickers and musicians on the U. S./Mexico border, aired on P.O.V. in 2006.
