Made in Canada – an intimate, p.o.v. exploration of the shifting landscape facing workers of the Canadian film and television industry, exemplified by the story of an aspiring documentary filmmaker knee deep in an “early-life career crisis” and attempting to gauge what the future has in store for his dream of making films in Canada.
At the heart of this documentary is the business of telling stories, the euphoric high of being in production, the Canadian resources that facilitate the process, the spirit, energy and sacrifices of the dedicated craftsmen and women who make ‘screen-magic’, the audiences that support their incredible efforts.
