Talented actor Rafael Amaya screened his recent film “Adios Mundo Cruel” (Goodbye Cruel World) at the 19th Annual San Diego Latino Film Festival. During the Q&A portion of the presentation, Amaya was given the prestigious festival’s top honor—the Corazon Award—for his outstanding work in Television and Film.
“Being honored with the Corazon Award for my trajectory gives meaning to many things, thanks!” Said Amaya upon receiving the award. “I’d like to thank the people responsible for the festival for gathering so many creative souls with a single purpose, to tell stories. Thanks for creating this platform so that our stories are seen, because a story that is not told does not exist. Thank you!”
Amaya also thanked his Mother and Dad as well as other members of his family, who traveled from nearby Tecate, Mexico to celebrate with him. He also took a moment to specifically thank “his ally and partner in crime”, girlfriend Angelica Celaya who was also present supporting Amaya.
Amaya also served as the face of the festival covering this past week’s edition of Vida Latina San Diego Magazine.
“Adios Mundo Cruel” directed by Jack Zagha Kababie, is a creative comedy from Mexico that finds humor in a series of unfortunate events. The hilarious film follows the story of Angel, a hard-working accountant that due to the economic slump, loses his job and is forced to find other ways to make ends meet for the sake of his family.
