The beauty of breaking barriers.
In constructing the story of Mary Bonnie Baker, a fearless Canadian woman whose career saw her break social and athletic barriers, all while maintaining dignity and integrity in the face of discrimination, producer Brent Kawchuk and director Anita Ayres ingeniously centred the Minute on a real life appearance on What’s My Line? Playing the Minute like a movie trailer, they were able to highlight Baker’s life and spirit in a way that is both informational and captivating, in under a minute. The result is one of the most popular Heritage Minutes they’ve ever produced.
The [Mary Bonnie Baker Heritage] Minute was one of the most memorable of the of the more than 20 ‘Minutes’ in which I have taken part.
