Everyone's favourite Canadian awards, the Geminis (in case you wondered) were presented yesterday, including Halifax filmmaker Eric Bednarski's The Strangest Dream, which won in the category of "Best Writing in a Documentary Program or Series."

The film recounts the story of "Joseph Rotblat, the history of nuclear weapons, and the efforts of the Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs." Bednarski, of course, is super-thrilled but wasn't around to accept the award. He's in Warsaw working on Neon, a film about communist-era propaganda neon signs, and he's also writing a book about Pugwash.
