The River of My Dreams: A Portrait of Gordon Pinsent

Directed by Brigitte Berman
Canada, 2016 (documentary, 104 minutes, colour, English)

Film Description:
"Gordon Pinsent is one of Canada s greatest and most beloved figures. Brigitte Berman's The River of My Dreams is a brilliant portrait of this icon, whose formidable and thoughtful storytelling takes us through his life and career, beginning with his childhood in Grand Falls, Newfoundland. With a body of work that includes the 1960s series Quentin Durgens, M.P., Canadian classics The Rowdyman and John and the Missus, and the acclaimed contemporary films The Shipping News and Away from Her, Pinsent's work is embedded in our national consciousness. [..] Berman's film is a charming trip through decades of Canadian culture, one that allows us to see how cultural legacies are built."
