"Corazón," "Palau Pledge" Score Two Grand LIAs Apiece; BBDO NY Named Global Agency of the Year
Demian Bichir portrays Dr. Mario Garcia in Montefiore hospital's "Corazon," winner of two Grand LIAs.
  • NEW YORK
  • --

The 2018 London International Awards (LIA) bestowed a dozen Grand LIAs, including two apiece for Montefiore Medical Center’s Corazón from JohnXHannes, NY, and Palau Legacy Project's "Palau Pledge" out of Host/Havas, Sydney. Also included in the Grand mix were Procter & Gamble’s “The Talk” from BBDO NY, and Nike’s “Nothing Beats A Londoner” out of Wieden+Kennedy, London. LIA winners were unveiled today (11/5); the results are based on judging for the 33rd annual LIAs convened over a 10-day per8iod.

Corazón’s two Grand LIAs came in the Branded Entertainment and the Health & Wellness categories. Singled out in the Corazón Grand wins was music/sound house Barking Owl in West L.A., which also earned the LIA mantle as North American Music & Sound Company of the Year. John Hillcoat of Serial Pictures directed Corazón, a 48-minute film about organ donation. Corazón depicts the real-life story of Elena Ramirez (portrayed by Ana de Armas whose credits include Blade Runner 2049 and Hands of Stone), a young Dominican woman living in Santo Domingo who is selling her body to provide for her family--only Ramirez’s body is failing her. She has a bad heart and has been given months to live unless she gets a new heart. After fainting, Elena meets a U.S.-based cardiologist, Dr. Mario Garcia (portrayed by Demian Bichir, an Oscar nominee for A Better Life), who is volunteering in his native hometown of Santo Domingo. Ramirez is past the point of help from conventional medicine, but Dr. Garcia gives her a fighting chance to live via a mechanical heart surgery that he and his colleagues can only perform at Montefiore in the Bronx. Ramirez sets out on a journey from Santo Domingo to New York City, facing challenges along the way, but always motivated by her conviction to live. This is a story of chance, hope, courage, friendship, love and generosity.

The other two-time Grand LIA honoree, the "Palau Pledge" campaign for the Palau Legacy Project, requires that visitors to Palau sign a passport pledge to act in an ecologically responsible way on the island. Palau Pledge won the Design Grand LIA and the Ambient Grand LIA.

Directed by Malik Vitthal of The Corner Shop, P&G’s “The Talk” earned the Integration Grand LIA. Part of P&G’s ongoing My Black is Beautiful initiative, the piece features different African-American parents having “The Talk” with their kids about racial bias and how it can make life more difficult—and at times dangerous. In one of this piece’s most poignant moments, a girl behind the wheel of a car insists she’s a good driver and her mom doesn’t need to tell her what to do if she gets pulled over. The girl has no intention of getting pulled over because she obeys the speed limit and the rules of the road. Mom doesn’t doubt that but she has to explain to her daughter, “This is not about you getting a ticket. This is about you not coming home.”

“The Talk” was among the mix of notable work that led BBDO NY to being named LIA’s Global Agency of the Year.

Riff Raff Films took the TV/Cinema/Online Film Grand LIA for Nike’s “Nothing Beats A Londoner.” Directed by the Megaforce collective and produced by Riff Raff, the short centers on enterprising, fiercely competitive, young Londoners who shape sport and culture in the metropolis around them. These hungry, resourceful and confident youngsters take us on a whistle-stop tour of their city--with the help of cameos from some of the Londoners they look up to, even as they strive to one-up them with their own sporting achievements. Shooting on the streets of such areas as Dalston, Peckham and Brixton provided a vivid backdrop for the joyful bravado, passion for sport and unique U.K. spirit that unites each of the 258 real-life young Londoners who appear in the film. The side of London explored in “Nothing Beats a Londoner” illustrates how, for the next generation, an urban environment is a playground, a canvas for creativity, self-expression and movement. Nike London is committed to making this playground even better for young people in the city, creating unique inspirational experiences that help them unlock their potential through the power of sport. The predominantly London-born-and-bred cast is made up of real athletes and joined by a plethora of famous faces, from sporting legends to music stars, including Mo Farah, Harry Kane, Dina Asher-Smith, Gareth Southgate and Skepta.
