A Winnipeg-produced television series has won a Golden Sheaf Award for best documentary.
“The Medicine Line” was recognized at the 2014 Yorkton Film Festival this past weekend and aired nationally on the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network.
The series followed cinematographer Dave Gaudet as he zigzags his way back and forth across the Canada-US border in his RV to discover aboriginal art, language, history and culture.
It was its episode Icons Of Oppression which won the series its recognition, where Gaudet starts his journey in New Orleans, Louisiana filming the Mardi Gras Indian before heading north to Lejac, B.C. to investigate the miracles of Rose Prince.
“We are very happy to accept this award and we’d also like to thank APTN and the Canada Media Fund for their support of this series and all of the friends we met on the road,” said Gaudet, producer and host of “The Medicine Line.”
The series is produced by Micro Bus Pictures, a division of Farpoint Films.
