I made a new film. This one is about the Montreal Canadiens, to help celebrate the launch of my friend Jay Baruchel’s new book called Born Into It. It's a beautiful book about his deep love for the Habs, and about family and life and art, and like everything he does, is all heart. The film is about the ‘100+ year generational tie’ that is the Montreal Canadiens, for anyone who has fallen under its' magical spell. The passages Jay narrates are from the wonderful 1945 Canadian novel “Two Solitudes” by the great Hugh MacLennan. The music is "Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis" by Ralph Vaughn Williams. Enjoy...
