Al Purdy Was Here

A documentary celebrating Canadian literary legend Al Purdy. The story is Purdy's resurrection and how artists young and old have embraced his spirit — that of a self-described "sensitive man," by turns brawling, wistful, indelicate and tender. This is a portrait of an artist as an icon in the making, framed by fresh work from artists he's inspired.
