;Magnus Isacsson;
Magnus Isacsson devoted himself to exploring vital social and political issues through powerful documentary films, working independently and with the National Film Board. He was also a university educator and a pioneer in community media, teaching audiovisual production in Zimbabwe and South Africa on behalf of Vidéo Tiers Monde. A former co-chair of the Documentary Organization of Canada (DOC) and vice-president of the Observatoire du documentaire, Magnus received the 2004 Prix Lumières from the Quebec directors’ association (ARRQ), which also named him as a member Emeritus in early 2012. His last film, Granny Power or Les Super-Mémés, was about the Raging Grannies, a very original protest movement founded in Canada.
