We are thrilled and honoured that the film has been shortlisted for the highly prestigious Grierson Awards in the Best Newcomer Documentary category! And our thanks go out to all The Grierson Trust members who watched and voted for the film. John Grierson, a pioneer of non-fiction filmmaking, is credited with coining the term “documentary” in a 1926 review, so to be affiliated with such a legacy represents tremendous recognition.
