Mise en scène

Top of page

This film offers a musical, tongue-in-cheek retelling of the life of Tony, Olivier and Dora Award-winning director, writer and composer Des McAnuff. Using the song “The Wind and the Rain” as a script, the film begins with Des unaccompanied and builds to a grand finale in true Shakespearean tradition. The stylistic approach pays tribute to a time of limited means and creative ingenuity, blending film and theatrical language to create a surreal mise en scène. Produced by the National Film Board of Canada in co-operation with the National Arts Centre and the Governor General’s Performing Arts Awards Foundation on the occasion of the 2012 Governor General’s Performing Arts Awards.
