TORONTO – A Canadian documentary about the early days of Greenpeace has snagged two prizes at the Sundance Film Festival.

Saskatoon film editor Jim Scott earned the world cinema documentary editing award for his work on How to Change the World at a gala Saturday.

The film also claimed the Candescent Award, a prize that recognizes social-issue films.

Written and directed by Jerry Rothwell, How to Change the World traces the organization’s origins to a group of Vancouver neighbours who united to protest atomic bomb tests in Alaska.

How to Change the World is slated to open in theatres later this year.
