'The Clinton special: a film about The Farm show' chronicles a group of actors who in 1972 went into an Ontario farming community to build a play of what they saw and learned. This famous experimental collaborative 'grass-roots' play is by Paul Thompson and Theatre Passe Muraille.
In 'Sons of Captain Poetry' Ondaatje documents the work and spirit of bpNichol (1944-88), 'Canada's convention-shattering voice of poetry'.
'Carry on Crime and punishment' is Ondaatje's whimsical slapstick 'docu-drama' which follows a couple of crooked Canadian poets who try to kidnap a dog.
