Wendy Lill: Playwright in Parliament

Wendy Lill: Playwright in Parliament

Votre location se termine le

This documentary profiles Wendy Lill, an acclaimed and award-winning playwright who ran for a seat in, and was unexpectedly elected to, the Canadian Parliament in 1997. Critics have said that Lill's writing "plunges deeply into the mysteries of the human heart"; she has written poignantly about suffering, hypocrisy, abuse of power and the human conscience. Lill's political ambition was simply to "make a difference", but politics turns out to be a drama for which she is not always prepared. By the end of her first year in office as rookie MP for Dartmouth, Lill has made a reputation for herself as a staunch and committed NDP cultural and disability critic. This film is a fascinating portrait of a committed and creative Canadian artist and social justice activist.
