David Bezmozgis wins Danuta Gleed award

Still trying to bend the ear of the Ottawa International Writersfest to bring him to Ottawa to read. His documentary film, Genuine Article, about several young lawyers out of school attempting to get a position at the big Toronto law firms was my first introduction to his talent. You may catch the film on the Documentary Channel if you get this, or have friends that do.

The Genuine Article explores the high-pressure, cutthroat recruiting practices of Toronto’s Bay Street law firms. The camera follows one firm and three law students as, over three days, they engage in a Darwinian battle to secure the right placement. It’s bloodless, eye-opening, and utterly compelling. Produced by Markham Street Films in association with The Documentary Channel.

Next Airing : Saturday, June 4 at 10 AM ET
