Canada has lost an award winning documentary filmmaker. Quebec’s Magnus Isacsson has died at the age of 64…after a long illness. Isacsson’s acclaimed National Film Board collaborations include 1990’s “Uranium,” about the consequences of uranium mining in Canada, and “Power,” from 1996 – about the James Bay Cree’s five-year battle against the Great Whale hydro megaproject. NFB chair Tom Perlmutter says Isacsson’s passing “is a great loss to the entire Quebec documentary film community.” Isacsson’s honours include a 2004 prize from the Quebec directors’ association, which also named him as a member Emeritus earlier this year.
