Dorn

Ojibway writer and director Jeff Dorn creates intelligent, stirring films that evocatively speak to the human condition. From the Walpole Island First Nation, Dorn began his career as a news photographer in Winnipeg. His filmography includes working as a director for CTV News CJOH in Ottawa between 2009 and 2012, the National Aboriginal Achievement Awards Television Showcase (2007-10), the Arctic Winter Games Opening Ceremonies (2004) and two television adaptions of Robert Munsch’s Winter Tales ( 50 Below Zero in 2004 and Baseball Bats for Christmas in 2003).

Dorn’s credits with Rezolution Pictures include co- director for two seasons of the acclaimed documentary series Rez Rides, and director of photography for Club Native, a Gemini Award winning documentary. Once again Dorn turns his passionate eye on the Native community for Rezolution Pictures’ latest documentary. This time, it’s Smoke Traders , an inside look at the world of the Mohawk tobacco trade.

My goal in making Smoke Traders will be to show audiences – and especially non-Natives – the real face of the “illegal” Mohawk tobacco industry. Why, for the Mohawks of Akwesasne, this trade is a right, not a crime.” – Jeff Dorn.
