This one-hour television documentary chronicles the spirit-filled life of Gladys Cook, who was abused at residential school, then worked through her struggles to become a strong community leader. It is one of Anglican Video's most-requested features.
Anglican Video Senior Producer Lisa Barry first met Ms. Cook in 1989, then spent the next 13 years establishing a relationship and uncovering the details of her astonishing life.
With its artful use of archival footage and still photography, combined with a haunting original score, the Gladys Cook story is a program that should be seen by all Canadians. Intimate and compelling, it is a tale of a woman who has lived through a shameful chapter in our history, emerging to become an inspiring symbol of healing and hope.
