It won numerous international awards including the Alfred Bauer Prize at Berlin. Her subsequent features further consolidated her reputation in world cinema. La niña santa (2004) and La mujer sin cabeza (2008) were both nominated for a Palme d’Or and Zama (2017) was chosen to represent Argentina in the Oscar and Goya Awards.
