Lucy Walker's Oscar short-list documentary Waste Land took two top honors as distinguished feature as well as the previously announced Pare Lorentz Award at the 2010 International Documentary Association (IDA) Awards Friday night, hosted by Morgan Spurlock. Waste Land follows artist Vik Muniz on a journey from his home in Brooklyn to his native Brazil to visit the world's largest garbage dump.

The Short Award went to HBO’s Woman Rebel, directed by Kiran Deol, about a female soldier in Nepal’s People’s Liberation Army who runs for office and is elected a government official.


Producer and director Cecilia Peck presented IDA’s Career Achievement Award to her friend and collaborator, Barbara Kopple (Oscar-winner for Harlan County USA and American Dream). The complete list of winners is below.

The IDA's Distinguished Continuing Series Award went to ESPN Films’ doc series 30 FOR 30, thirty stories from ESPN’s 30-year history. And the Distinguished Limited Series Award went to Connie Field for her seven-film series Have You Heard from Johannesburg, a cinematic history of the global movement to destroy South African apartheid.
