Noam Gonick, the artist-filmmaker responsible for Stryker and Hey, Happy, has received $15,000 in cash and services from the Winnipeg Film Group, as the winner of the 2012 Manitoba Film Hothouse Award.
The award is designed to provide recognition to directing talent in Manitoba. In conjunction with the award that is funded by the Manitoba government, the WFG will feature a retrospective series on his works titled Noam Gonick: Wildflower of Manitoba on June 22, 2012. This screening series will include his short works, as well as Stryker.
Gonick plans to spend the money on an expanded documentary titled Golden Boy, an experimental essay film proposing that "the citizens of Winnipeg are all subjects of Hermes, father of Western esoteric tradition."
