Notes about Growing up at Paradise


Quote by the Director

"Having worked at the [National] Film Board, and working for other people, I learned that you either please yourself, or simply work for somebody else. That's why I was happy to be making this film on a Canada Council grant, so I wouldn't have to answer to anybody else."
-- Sandy Wilson (source)
