Donald Brittain: Filmmaker

Top of page

A close look at one of the best documentary filmmakers in the world, this retrospective of Brittain films also offers a glimpse of the man and the restless energy that informed his work. Dedicated and hard-working, Donald Brittain left nothing to chance, driving himself and his colleagues at the NFB and the CBC until perfection was achieved, or until airtime, whichever came first.

1992, 94 min 23 s
