The award recognizes documentary filmmakers who embody the spirit, energy, and innovation demonstrated by anthropologist Margaret Mead.
The 2013 Mead Award jury members include HBO’s Lisa Heller, documentary producer Sadia Shepard, filmmaker Jamal Joseph, and Reel 13’s Richard Peña.
A Sundance 2013 selection, the documentary chronicles how a brave young man’s strong will to live and deep love for life have led to the most poignant, yet creative work of his life.
