This animated short tells the story of Edouard Beaupré, a.k.a. the Willow Bunch Giant. At 2.5 m (8’ 3”), he was the tallest Canadian in history. Born in 1881 in a small Métis community south of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, his life was tragically cut short in 1904 while he was “on display” at the St. Louis World’s Fair.

    It is terribly sad when people get exploited. It is nice for Edouard to be poignantly remembered by those who loved him. I love what his aunt says, to heal the family pain. I had never heard of him before.

    During the early 70's, I had the privilege of viewing Mr. Beaupre's mortal remains, as they stood in a tall glass display case at the Universite de Montreal, all stored in a small locked room. His skin was leather-like and he was standing upright. Indeed quite a sight to behold. A true giant of a man. I had never heard of any reference to him until now, other than what I had researched myself. A true pity that he had to endure the various indignities during his life, and even after his death. I still consider it to have been an honor to have born witness to the remains of this unique man.
