Kopple’s 1976 documentary, Harlan County USA, about a coal miners’ strike in Kentucky, earned an Academy Award® as well as a place in the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress. Her 1991 film American Dream also won an Academy Award®, as well as the Jury Prize, the Audience Award and the Filmmaker’s Trophy at the Sundance Film Festival. In previous years, IDA has bestowed its Career Achievement Award on documentary luminaries such as Sheila Nevins, Michael Apted, Ken Burns, Albert Maysles, Haskell Wexler, Michael Moore, Werner Herzog, and last year’s recipient, Errol Morris.

After An American Family, the Raymonds formed their own company, Video Verite, and produced The Police Tapes (1977), which captures the life and times of a precinct in the South Bronx, and which inspired numerous fiction and nonfiction law enforcement series. The couple received an Oscar® nomination for Doing Time: Life Inside the Big House (1991) and an Oscar® for I Am a Promise: The Children of Stanton Elementary School (1993).
