Mexico short film wins NASA competition

Mexico (Notimex) -- The short film "Apizaco," by Alex Moreno, won the 2017 CineSpace competition at the NASA and Houston Cinema Arts Festival, the Mexican Space Agency said.

The film competed against 650 films from around the world.

Apizaco tells the story of three students from the central eastern state of Tlaxcala and their professor as they compete and win three of the six categories in NASA's Mars Trekker Global Teen Summit.

"We are pleased to hear these news, because at the Agency we've doubled our efforts in spreading the importance of the benefits of space," said the Agency's general director Javier Mendieta.
