An award-winning actor, writer, producer and director, Gross has struggled,
like writers and filmmakers before him, to find the right balance between the
heart and the head, between intellect and emotions. But sometimes a story
lodges captivating a filmmaker and simply won't leave. For Paul Gross, this
story was Passchendaele. The seeds of the film sprang from Paul's
grandfather's experiences in the WWI battle, a battle that claimed the lives
of thousands of Canadian infantrymen and became synonymous with Canada's
courage and resolution in the face of epic tragedy.
This film was produced for the 2009 Governor General's Performing Arts Award.
