Guadalajara fest to honor Farrow

World Brief

Mia Farrow will receive a lifetime achievement award at the 20th Guadalajara Film Festival on March 17 following the screening of “Moolaade,” helmed by Senegalese Ousmane Sembene.

Pic deals with female castration in Africa, an issue Farrow has been involved in as a UNICEF ambassador of good will since 2000.

“Moolaade” won the Ecumenical Jury special mention and Un Certain Regard award in Cannes last year and is this year’s foreign language pic honor from the National Society of Film Critics in the U.S.

Indie distrib New Yorker Films released pic in the U.S. late last year.

Proceeds from the screening and career awards show will benefit the Fundacion por los Ninos Planeta, a children’s charity founded in 1994 by producer-philanthropist Jorge Vergara’s nutritional supplements firm Omnilife.
