Ted Baryluk's Grocery

Ted Baryluk's Grocery


Autre option

This short documentary profiles Ukrainian-Canadian Ted Baryluk, whose grocery store has been a fixture in Winnipeg's North End for over 20 years. In this photo study, Ted talks about his store, the customers who have come and gone and the social changes his multicultural neighbourhood has seen. But most of all he wonders what will become of his store after he retires. He hopes his daughter will take over, but she wants to move away. The film is a wistful rendering of a shopkeeper's relationship with his daughter and a fascinating portrait of a neighbourhood and its inhabitants.

A multicultural neighbourhood in Winnipeg is seen through the eyes of grocer Ted Baryluk. Over the 20 years that he has operated the store, the neighbourhood has changed considerably. The constant is that the people of the neighbourhood have always come from a mix of cultures, a microcosm of Canada. An exquisite film shot in the style of a photomontage.

    I grew up half a block a way from there in the 90s. At that point the store was already gone and I didn't know it until now, but there was an empty lot with a foundation there. In the film at one point you can see another store called "Brothers", that was there in the 90s, the building is still there today, but no longer a convenience store.

    I hope Mr. Baryluk stopped smoking.

    Question for my Social 7 Class: How does the film "Ted Baryluk's Grocery" portray Canadian Multiculturalism? Answer: In the film, multiculturalism is portrayed through Mr. Baryluk's store. Many people from different cultures and places go to his store. For example First Nations and Polish Canadians. Mr. Baryluk didn't seem to care who he sold to. The store was a place for everyone to meet and share ideas and merge cultures. Mr. Baryluk was Ukrainian and shared his culture through his store.
