Attending Filmmaker: Peter Raymont
September 8, 2014
Lunenburg Doc Fest is thrilled to announce that Peter Raymont, Producer of Fight Like Soldiers Die Like Children, will be in attendance to introduce the documentary and participate in a post-screening Q&A.
Emmy Award-winning filmmaker, journalist and writer Peter Raymont has produced and directed over 100 documentaries and TV drama series during his 39-year career. His productions have won over 40 international awards and been screened and broadcast worldwide.
Raymont’s career began at age 21 at the National Film Board of Canada in Montreal where, from 1971-78, he worked as an editor, director and producer. In 1979, he moved to Toronto and established his independent film and television production company, Investigative Productions, now operating as White Pine Pictures. He co-partnered the company for many years with his late wife, award-winning filmmaker and author, Lindalee Tracey. Their collaboration resulted in several successful documentary series and specials including the Emmy and Sundance Award-winning feature “Shake Hands with the Devil” and the hit 38-episode TV drama series “The Border”.
Raymont’s productions are often provocative investigations of “hidden worlds” in politics, the media, and big business. His films are informed with a passion for human rights and social justice.
Fight Like Soldiers Die Like Children will screen 7:30pm on Saturday, September 20 at The Pearl Theatre.
