Casa Hogar Film Wins Emmy for Best Director

Dec 19, 2013
"Mi Casa Hogar," a short film, about a children's home in Acapulco that MTW partners with, recently won an Emmy for "Best Director." The film, produced and directed by award-winning director Nick Nanton, was also nominated for "Best Topical Documentary." Here's a summary excerpt from imdb.com. 

"Acapulco is known as a playground for the rich and famous. But for many children who live there, there are few fun and games - just a daily battle for survival. Enter Casa Hogar del Niño de Acapulco, a former luxury hotel transformed into an orphanage whose mission is to help those children to a brighter tomorrow. … Mi Casa Hogar demonstrates what a difference a loving 'home' really can make - especially to those who never thought they'd have one." Written by Celebrity Films.
