Best MN-Made Feature Documentary

WINNER

First Daughter and the Black Snake: Keri Pickett
"Many people have heard of Winona LaDuke, but most of us do not really know her. After watching this documentary, we felt like we had followed a Minnesota filmmaker on a journey to understand a Minnesota legend. Keri Pickett's tenacity as a director is admirable as she filmed her subject with incredible access and intimacy. When we were done watching this film, we felt as if we truly knew Ms. LaDuke, her family, and community and we were moved by her fight to save Ojibwe land and water for future generations."

The Sounding: Catherine Eaton
"The Sounding is a sensitive, intelligent telling of a unique story about the relationship of language and mental health in human relations and notions of normalcy."
