Lots of Kids, A Monkey and a Castle wins Best Documentary at Spain's annual Goya Awards.

The awards recognise the best Spanish films of the year at a Centro de Congresos Príncipe Felipe.

A charming and rich portrait of eccentric matriarch Julita Salmerón and her family, the film bested five other films to take home the prize. Filled with hilarious and unexpected turns Lots of Kids, A Monkey and a Castle discovers just how Julita got her three childhood wishes: lots of kids, a monkey, and a castle.

The film already landed the coveted Karlovy Vary Grand Prix for Best Documentary Film and the Best Documentary at Hamptons International Film Festival last year.
