AWARD WINNER: William W. Warner Beautiful Swimmers Award; Co-presented with the National Museum of the American Indian

Includes a pre-recorded Q&A with filmmaker Tracey Deer, moderated by Cynthia Benitez (Film Programmer, Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian)

About the Award: Established for the 2015 Festival in memory of William Warner by the Warner/Kaempfer family, the Warner Award recognizes a film that reflects a spirit of reverence for the natural world.

Twelve-year-old Beans is on the edge: torn between innocent childhood and delinquent adolescence; forced to grow up fast to become the tough Mohawk warrior she needs to be during the Indigenous uprising known as The Oka Crisis, which tore Quebec and Canada apart for 78 tense days in the summer of 1990.
