Episode 396: Brotherhood Director Richard Bell


A band of teenage boys arrive at Long Point Camp on sprawling Balsam Lake for the ultimate Canadian experience: two weeks of games, kite-making, lacrosse, sing-a-longs, marshmallow roasts, canoeing, swimming and adventure. The unofficial leader of this band of brothers, George Waller, has fled a tumultuous family life and lands at camp-angry and very raw.


Waller meets Arthur, a new camp leader who's progressive and amenable, and is reunited with Robert, the camp's patriarch, stoic and orderly-someone who reminds Waller just a little too much of his father. Both Great War veterans, Arthur and Robert have their own approaches to educating and nurturing boys. Arthur and Robert set off across the lake in a thirty-foot Indian war canoe with Waller and ten of his companions. When they encounter a freak summer storm and are capsized in the middle of the churning lake, the brotherhood's holiday descends into a soul-shuddering fight for survival.


Only four will survive. Based on a true story.


Richard Bell, the Writer and Director of Brotherhood sat down with the Cross Border Interviews with Chris Brown to talk about the movie and his event in Calgary on June 24th.
