Toronto-based director and screenwriter Barry Stevens mines personal experience to craft documentaries with broad appeal. He has extensive experience in writing TV drama, and has successfully transported his storytelling skills to the documentary form. He won the Writers Guild of Canada Award for Offspring, an entertaining account of the search for his biological father. The Bomber’s Dream, a critical examination of aerial bombing, was also inspired by an unusual family fact: during WWII some of his British relatives were bombed by German members of his extended family. He writes extensively for Canadian TV and has also worked as an actor.
