(Santo Domingo, November 4, 2013)  – Green Card Warriors, a film written and directed by Miriam Kruishoop – the official Dutch selection at the FCGD – received an award at the 16th edition of the Los Angeles Latino Film Festival, which was held from October 10-14th.

Director Miriam Kruishoop won the prize for best director of the film in which a 14 -year-old adolescent named Angelo and his family struggle to find their place on U.S. soil. The drama explains how this family group finds a way out through a promise offered by the U.S. military, instead of sending their eldest son to the army.

Kruishoop, who got the idea for the film by questioning the backdrop for these recruitments after seeing a billboard of the United States’ Marine Corps, is a photographer, director and winner of several awards including the Nobel Citroën in the Holland Festival and the Culture Award in the city of Amsterdam.

The film, which belongs to the “Touching RD” section of the Dominican Republic Global Film Festival, also features Dominican actor Manny Perez, who will be among the local guests invited to the parade of stars on the golden carpet at the gala inaugural on November 12th.

Also at the L.A. Latino Film Festival, the film Ponchao, also starring Perez, won the People’s Choice Award.
