At the 2009 Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, documentarian St. Clair Bourne will be honored with a post-mortem career award. Filmmaker Sam Pollard (1997's Oscar-nominated 4 Little Girls) will curate a series of Bourne's work. From the press release:
"Saint was a mentor to many of us young producers who were trying to establish our careers," said Pollard. "He was always available to look at our films at any stage and always there with fresh insights into how we could make our work better. He will be terribly missed."
Hoop Dreams director Steve James will also curate a series called "This Sporting Life" about sports films. In 2008, James was honored at Full Frame for At the Death House Door.
Full Frame is April 2-5 in downtown Durham.
