Price of Peace wows Canadians
Kim Webby's documentary The Price of Peace, featuring Tame Iti and the aftermath of the Urewera raids of 2007, has won another award.
It took second place at this month's Montreal First Peoples’ Festival.
The film has also been shown in a special screening to the Mohawk community at Kahnawake, where there was an armed stand-off with authorities in 1990 and a continued history of tension.
The festival's Teueikan Grand Prize went to Sterlin Harjo's Mekko, about a former prisoner living homeless in the streets of Tulsa, Oklahoma.
The Montreal festival also included two programmes of shorts curated by Wairoa Maori Film Festival’s Leo Koziol and Deborah Walker from Auckland University.
