For anyone who has ever wondered what it takes to become an actor, the film provides a close-up of a craft that demands much from body and mind. An energetic and intense film which looks in at students and instructors as they sweat and strain through a typical workday at the National Theatre School - Canada’s foremost training ground for performers.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
