"For years one of Canada's most innovative and politically committed documentary filmmakers, Beryl Fox made seminal contributions to the development of television current affairs in the 1960s. She joined the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation as a script assistant and researcher, and co-directed her first film in 1962. [...] Although she left the CBC in 1966, she continued to make documentaries for television throughout the seventies, until she began to produce feature fiction films for theatrical markets. Her work is consistently marked by clearly populist sympathies, commitment to social change, and strong liberal feminism."
