Peter Wintonick's last film a search for utopia
He's best known for Manufacturing Consent, a film about media propaganda.
Peter Wintonick won a Governor General's Award for his work. He was also a mentor to many - including his daughter Mira. They co-directed the 2009 documentary PilgrIMAGE.
This fall, just after he was diagnosed with cancer, he started planning another documentary. It was about utopias - imagined, ideal places. He'd been gathering footage on it for years.
Peter Wintonick died before he could finish the project. Now, his daughter Mira Burt-Wintonick - a CBC producer - is hoping to complete it. She tells Sonali Karnick about the project and how you can help.
