Bush Pilot: Reflections on a Canadian Myth


Shot in 1978 and completed in 1980, this was originally to be a film about the famous Noorduyn Norseman bush plane. Although the film evolved into a tribute to the bush pilots of the Canadian north, the Norseman is still prominent. The film offers a reflection on the development of the North, where towns are increasingly being remade in the image of the South, and bush pilots are slowly becoming obsolete (22:32).
