Topahdewin: The Gladys Cook Story, a documentary produced by Anglican Video, the Anglican Church of Canada’s national video department in Toronto, won a Redemptive Storyteller award at the Redemptive Film Festival, held Nov. 2-3 in Virginia Beach, Va.

The film is the story of an aboriginal woman, now in her 70s, her experiences with the native residential school system and her journey to healing. “We greatly appreciate the program being honoured,” said Lisa Barry, senior producer at Anglican Video, “but the true honour is the film’s continued use in university social work programs, in police training, and in healing groups all over the country. It’s a testament to Gladys’ continued outreach of healing.” The documentary has been broadcast in Canada on Vision TV.
