John McCrae's War: In Flanders Fields

This feature documentary profiles poet John McCrae, from his childhood in Ontario to his years in medicine at McGill University and the WWI battlefields of Belgium, where he cared for wounded soldiers. Generations of schoolchildren have recited McCrae’s iconic poem “In Flanders Fields,” but McCrae and Alexis Helmer—the young man whose death inspired the poem—have faded from memory. This film seeks to revive their stories through a vivid portrait of a great man in Canadian history.

    «My Grandfather, Gerry Brimble survived The Second Battle of Ypres. At age 17 he was gassed and sent home to Kenora, Ontario. Gerry later died of lung cancer. He knew me although I do not remember him as a boy. I remember and Honor him. My mother told me of him urinating on his underwear and breathing through it to neutralize the chlorine gas. This is all I know. » — mikecan001, 12 Aoû 2014
