Okpik’s Dream wins the Grand Prix Rigoberta Menchu Award

The Grand Prix Rigoberta Menchu Community Award was bestowed on Okpik's Dream at the 25th Montreal First People's Festival during an awards ceremony held in Montreal on Monday, August 3rd.

Established in honour of the Guatemalan human rights activist, the award recognizes works with a social and community message.

Notes on the selection from the 2015 jury:

A man with a physical disability has succeeded in becoming a champion in dogsled team races and a breeder playing a part in the re-introduction of sled dogs among the Inuit; this is an exploit that becomes an allegory in a film that extols the ancestral virtues of endurance and bravery that enabled humans to survive in the starkest of landscapes and develop unique cultures there. Thus, the First Peoples Festival 2015 jury awards the Rigoberta Menchu grand prize to a work harnessed to hope. In its generous movements, it takes our gaze to broad horizons of renewal; Okpik's Dream by Laura Rietveld
