Guillermo del Toro Film Wins Venice Film Festival’s Gold Lion

❝ Famed Latin American director Guillermo del Toro has made history by becoming the first Mexican filmmaker to win a Gold Lion for his latest work “The Shape of Water.”

The award was announced at the close of Venice Film Festival’s ten-day program where 21 international films competed for the prize…

❝ The Shape of Water is set in the Cold-War era and combines the genres of fairytale, thriller, and romance.

The protagonist, Elisa, is a mute woman who cleans at a secret government laboratory where she discovers their top secret — a South American scaled creature with whom she starts an unlikely friendship.

The film is due to be released by Fox Searchlight on December 8.

And only a few episodes of THE STRAIN left on US television.
