This rarely-screened show is evidence of CBC’s early history of thought-provoking television. A few years after the publication of The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz, Mordecai Richler reflects on the evolution of his own views on the relationship between Jew and Gentile, and defends himself against accusations of being a Jewish anti-Semite. Directed by Daryl Duke for the CBC series Q for Quest, the show features moments of Richler addressing the camera and staged scenes from Duddy Kravitz, as well as It’s Harder to be Anybody, which was later incorporated into his novel Cocksure.
|Guests||Filmmaker Charles Officer, Giller Prize founder Jack Rabinovitch, professor Pierre Anctil, professor and writer Norman Ravvin. Panel discussion moderated by CTV's Evan Solomon.|
