University of Saskatchewan English master’s student Tasha Hubbard took home the golden sheaf award for “Best Aboriginal Film” at the Yorkton short film and video festival this month. Hubbard’s documentary, Two Worlds Colliding, produced by the National Film Board, chronicles the story of Saskatoon’s infamous “freezing deaths,” and the divide between a fearful, mistrustful aboriginal community and a police force that had to come to terms with a shocking secret. “I’m pleased the film and its content has been recognized in this way. Police-Aboriginal relations continue to need work and I hope the film can contribute to dialogue in this area,” said Hubbard. The film was also nominated in the documentary category.
