I like the fact that people underestimate me. You know, they pat me on the head, then I rip their throat out.
– Sam Sullivan in Citizen Sam
Vancouver’s Joe Moulins’ documentary on Vancouver’s mayor Sam Sullivan has been selected for this year’s Hot Docs festival in Toronto.
It’s showing Wednesday April 25th at 9:30 at the Al Green Theatre, and Saturday April 28th at the Bloor Theatre at 2 pm. Tickets at 416-588-8DOC or visit the Hot Docs web site.
I first met Joe in the late 80s’ when he was still doing freelance radio pieces and I was producing an arts show for CBC Vancouver called Art Beat.
Joe was one of those guys you could count on to bring pack a nicely formed item, always bringing in more than promised. Guys like him are a producers dream-come-true.
Joe’s created an amazing doc – it’s a wonderful story and captured in a way that will surprise you.
Here a trailer at YouTube. Watch it and you’ll know why you have to see this doc.
If you’re in Toronto, make sure you see it at the festival.
