Hopkin's "Sheep" Wins International Prize at Hot Docs '06

Ben Hopkins‘ “37 Uses For A Dead Sheep” won the best international documentary prize at the 2006 Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival. The film is described by the festival as a “look at members of the once nomadic Kirghiz tribe as their younger generation adjusts to the modern world in Turkey.” The prize for best Canadian doc feature went to Shelley Saywell‘s “Martyr Street” and the first-time director award went Greg Hamilton for “Mystic Ball.” Honorable mentions in the international feature doc competition were awarded to Adan Aliaga‘s “My Grandmother’s House” and Nikolaus Geyrhalter‘s “Our Daily Bread.” The festival awarded its annual Outstanding Achievement Award to Werner Herzog.
