On March 30, 2016, Cinema Politica was privileged to award Toronto-based documentary filmmaker and activist Min Sook Lee with an award inspired by the lifework of Alanis Obomsawin.
Cinema Politica Concordia was honoured to have Alanis Obomsawin present during a screening of her powerful new documentary, THE PEOPLE OF THE KATTAWAPISKAK RIVER, last night (with about 550 in attendance!). To mark the occasion, which occurred in soldarity with Idle No More and on a day of action, organizers gave Obomsawin the new book celebrating George Littlechild's artwork, The Spirit Giggles Within. Littlechild is a West Coast based artist, educator and activist, whose work explores issues of identity, history, colonialism, racism and family. 
Last Monday, following a Concordia screening of a selection of Greyson's work called "Sex, Song and Segregation" Cinema Politica awarded the Toronto-based filmmaker a new award, named after one of Canada's most committed documentarians.
