MOVIE: Finding Peter Bryce
A one-hour documentary which uncovers the vision and compassion of a man who pioneered the public health and social policy movements of a man who pioneered the public health and social policy movements in Canada, and, in 1907, blew the whistle on the abhorrent conditions in Indian Residential Schools (Finding Peter Bryce, 2019).
In Finding Peter Bryce, journalist and teacher Andy Bryce traces his great-grandfathers story – from his childhood in rural Ontario, to his mysterious death on a cruise ship in the West Indies. He finds a brilliant and complex man who spoke truth to power and who could also inspire his grandchildren in the wonders of the garden. We are left wondering how many other great stories are to be found stored in cardboard boxes and forgotten filing cabinets.
