Meet Oscar-winning director Brigitte Berman opening night only!
“Despite his best efforts to avoid fame, Gordon Pinsent is well-known to Canadians. The super-modest actor, 86, is a national treasure — he’d be so embarrassed by that description — and a terrific new documentary on his life reveals that he’s also a bit of a renaissance man. The actor is also a poet, playwright and painter.
“It took Oscar-winning (Artie Shaw: Time Is All You've Got) filmmaker Brigitte Berman to finally get a definitive Pinsent biopic made. The River of My Dreams covers 70 years in Pinsent’s life and career, and that’s 70 years of Canadian culture.
“Pinsent is known for theatre (he was Stratford’s Legacy Award recipient in 2016) and for some 140 film and TV projects. One generation knows him from films such as The Rowdyman (which he wrote) and Who Has Seen The Wind or TV’s Quentin Durgens, M.P.”
