View from the Typewriter

The lives and work of Canada's most loved English-language writers are celebrated in this unique collection of excerpts from National Film Board documentary productions.

From Margaret Laurence's eloquent and painful descriptions of Manawaka - her imaginary prairie community, and Farley Mowat's observations of the stoic people of small Newfoundland fishing villages, to Jack Hodgins' satirical portraits of offbeat Vancouver Islanders, View from the Typewriter reflects a variety of literary approaches. The result is a renewed understanding of ourselves, our country and our writers.

Conceived and written by Robert Duncan, one of Canada's most distingusiehd filmmakers, this graceful, contempative, and perhaps even prophetic film skillfully blends literature with life, laughter with philosophy. The result is a song of praise to a country and its people.
