FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

"Sand Creek Massacre Film Harvests Another Best Film Award"

January 16, 2008 -- CENTENNIAL, CO -- "The Sand Creek Massacre" was awarded
a Golden Drover Award (like an Oscar only a Drover) for Best Native American Film
in the Trail Dance Film Festival in Duncan, Oklahoma on the Chisholm Trail on January
13, 2008. The documentary film, also awarded Best Film in The Indie Film Festival and
The American Indian Film Festival, portrays the horrific event from the Cheyenne and
Arapahos' perspective when more than 400 women, children, mentally- and physically-
challenged people, and elderly were slaughtered by military troops in the southeastern
Colorado Territory in 1864.

Cecil Brewer, a film festival volunteer, said he and his wife really liked "The Sand
Creek Massacre". He said, "I never heard about this event before." Although he
enjoyed watching the movie, he said it appeared to him that there was no motive
for the massacre, just cold-blooded murder."

“The Sand Creek Massacre” was only one of approximately two dozen documentaries
shown over the course of the weekend-long event at the Simmons Center and Chisholm
Trail Heritage Center.

Award-winning writer/filmmaker, Donald L. Vasicek, the director and producer of the film,
said, "As I mentioned to Bill Kurtis (producer of more than 300 hundred documentary
films, many of which have been aired on A&E including "Investigating History", "Cold
Case Files", and "American Justice") during breakfast one morning, I entered the film
in the Trail Dance Film Festival for exposure. I define this kind of exposure to be
exposure of the Sand Creek Massacre and to educate others in order to create a greater
awareness about the Cheyenne and Arapaho people."

Vasicek, via his film company, Olympus Films+, LLC, is dedicated to writing and producing
quality products that serve to educate others about the human condition.
