In 1999 the last stand of Salvador Allende won the best history award at the 1999 Hot Docs Film Festival.

Henriquez's film Uyghurs: Prisoners of the Absurd (Ouïghours, prisonniers de l’absurde) had its world premiere on Friday, October 10, 2014, at the Festival du nouveau cinema. The film, about the 22 Uyghur captives in Guantanamo, is his third related to controversial US policies on holding civilians, for years, in extrajudicial detention. Rushan Abbas, a refugee herself, who had become a US citizen and successful in business, and had agreed to go to Guantanamo to serve as a translator, was one of the experts interviewed in the film told the Montreal Gazette why she agreed to be in Henriquez's film when she had declined other invitations.
