The award was given to them for "No Turning Back," a Zokalo Entertainment feature suspense that will be released in Spain towards the end of June.

|Zokalo Entertainment's "No Turning Back"
was nominated for a 2002
Alma Award in the category of Outstanding Independent Motion Picture.
The ALMA Awards was created in 1995 to promote fair, accurate, and
balanced portrayals of Latinos in television, film, and music. Born out of a direct response to negative stereotyping of Latinos in entertainment, these awards honor Latino performers for their outstanding artistic achievement, impact, and enhancement of the image of Latinos. This show, which takes place in LA on May 18th and airs on ABC on June 1st, was named "ALMA"(Spanish for "spirit" or "soul") because it represents the determined spirit of the
Latino people in an effort to reflect the spirit as well as the scope of the awards program. Presenters include Jennifer Lopez, Gregory Nava, Jon Seda, Jimmy Smits, John Leguizamo and Rachel Welch, among numerous others. 4-02
