Prospector Films, in association with Documentary, is proud to announce that the feature documentary Last Woman Standing, directed by Juliet Lammers and Lorraine Price, will world premiere at the 20th Hot Docs International Film Festival, which runs April 25th – May 5th, 2013. Last Woman Standing follows Ariane Fortin and Mary Spencer, as they fight each other for an Olympic dream.
In 2012, the Olympic Games included women’s boxing for the first time in history. But only three weight categories would be admitted – 51kg, 60kg and 75kg. To compete for their Olympic dream women boxers all over the world were forced to move up or down in weight. For two of the world’s best fighters, both from Canada, this meant the end of a friendship and the beginning of a fierce rivalry.

Prospector Films is proud to announce the start of principal photography on Aisling Chin-Yee’s directorial debut, Michael’s Story.
On Declan’s sixth birthday, his baby brother Michael dies in his crib from sudden infant death syndrome. His birthday forgotten, and not understanding what “dead” is, Declan experience’s the death of his brother only through his parents’ grief, frozen in their pain. Declan just wants his life to be normal, he wants his mother to stop crying, and his dad to play with him again. Not being able to rely on his parents, Declan seeks refuge in his baby brother’s room. His birthday now intrinsically linked with Michael’s death, he tries to understand what has happened to his family, and if he too will stop breathing in the night. Based on a true story, Michael’s Story is an intimate drama about death from the perspective of six-year-old boy.
