How super exciting: Shane Belcourt, Director of Photography for Listening to the Land, and Lisa Jackson (currently a student at York University) have been awarded the Alanis Obamsawin Award for Best Documentary Work Long Format at the Imaginative Film Festival this week. They co-directed Indictment: The Crimes of Shelly Cartier. It’s playing on CBC on October 29 at 9 pm. Check out the trailer. http://www.cbc.ca/cbcdocspov/episodes/indictment-the-crimes-of-shelly-chartier
As for my work, I am now moving into figuring out and listing the credits. That means checking out each person who appears in the film as well as all those who contributed. I think immediately of Cheyenne Vachon and Jessica Nattawappio who worked as research assistants. And that is only the beginning of a very long list.
