Traces of the Trade has been named the best documentary in the “Courage in Filmmaking” category for 2008 by the Women Film Critics Circle.

Gender played a central role in our discussions of race and privilege during the filming of Traces of the Trade, even though this issue did not appear in the finished film. So I think that this award, by an organization promoting the voices and perspectives of women in film, is a particularly fitting tribute to the work that Katrina Browne and everyone involved with the film has done.

The awards ceremony will be broadcast live on Wednesday, December 31 at 11am on WBAI-AM (New York) and streamed online at

    Congratulations to Katrina Browne & to the extended DeWolfe family & to all those who participated in the film. What a wonderfully apt award; this film took a lot of courage to make! Hopefully even more people will see Traces as a result of this award and be moved to think more deeply about questions of race and privilege.
