Acclaimed cinematographer Haskell Wexler will be honored with the International Documentary Association‘s 2006 Career Achievement Award at the organization’s Distinguished Documentary Achievement Awards, December 8, 2006. “We could rightly present two career achievement awards to Haskell Wexler,” said IDA President Diane Estelle Vicari, in a statement. “He deserves this recognition for his incredibly powerful, diverse body of work as well as for his unwavering courage. He has inspired a generation of documentary filmmakers to be uncompromising in their pursuit of the truth regarding the crucial issues of our times.” [Eugene Hernandez]
