"As Head of the Agricultural Unit [at the National Film Board of Canada], [Evelyn] Spice Cherry produced films for the war effort and the co-operative farm movement, and brought prairie life to national and international consciousness. The Cherrys [Evelyn and Lawrence] were also key figures in the development of the Yorkton Film Council in 1947 and the distribution circuits that brought films to rural areas."
