50 for 50: Volume 2 - The Documentary Tradition: Tape 3

Top of page

Four films on the outdoors make up The Documentary Tradition: Tape 3. Bill Mason's Wolf Pack shows the absorbing, even admirable qualities of the character and behaviour of the wolf and its essential role in the scheme of life and death (19 min. 58 sec.). A wordless classic, Les Raquetteurs is a charming look at a snowshoeing festival in Québec (10 min.). With music by folk singers Kate and Anna McGarrigle, Canada Vignettes: The Log Driver's Waltz is a short tribute to the stalwart champions of the log drive and their abilities on the dance floor (3 min. 17 sec.). Song of the Paddle is Bill Mason's record of a joyous family canoe trip on Lake Superior (40 min. 45 sec.).

1989, 74 min
