Hester Jonkhout has won the award for Best Cinematography for the shortfilm La Dama Blanca
at the CaribbeanTales International Film Festival in Canada. Untill now Hester has mostly shot documentaries. It’s Hesters’ first fiction film and it is immediately awarded. Seems this new terrain is a slam dunk.

This shortfilm La Dama Blanca is directed by Guus de Sain, is a interpretation of the screenplay by Laura Quast. And lead roles were played by Rina Penso and Giovanni Abath.
