Shot over two days in 2005, “Getting Past the Bull” is my first fictional narrative short, following my 2004 documentary “Gaza Toronto” and my 2006 three-minute experimental “Homage.”

Based on a short story I wrote for a University of Toronto fiction workshop, “Bull” came from a childhood memory and is intended to remind you that even if only in your mind, you can always go home.

Carl Marotte, Aidan Devine, Randy Hughson, John Wildman and Tamara Gorski lead an award-winning cast.
