In 2010 the film adaptation of her novel Elisa Kiseljak, directed by Judith Colell an starring Aina Clotet, was awarded the Special Prize of the Jury at the 58th San Sebastian Film Festival.
She has organised the literary festivals “Fet a Mèxic” (Made In Mexico, 2007) and “Fet a Amèrica” (Made In America, 2010) and is founding editor of the blog “Nuestra Aparente Rendición” (Our Apparent Surrender) which, since the summer of 2010, has become a major forum for discussion and reflection on violence and war in Mexico.
