WHY I MADE THIS FILM
This film reveals, like never before, the contentious events beginning in fall 2016 in Toronto when professor Jordan Peterson published a viral video denouncing political correctness and criticizing Canadian human rights legislation. But I didn’t come into this project chasing a divisive story. I started one documentary and then it transformed before my eyes, so I followed the film where it took me.
