Description

The cost of heroism—Canadian independent documentary the Other Side of the

Hero gets up close and personal with first responders

Canadian Actor Enrico Colantoni, who played Sgt. Greg Parker on the popular series, Flashpoint, is the co-producer of the new independent documentary The Other Side of the Hero along with Canadian filmmaker Karen Shopsowitz.

In The Other Side of the Hero, we get to know first responders who have experienced the flip-side of what can happen when a hero discovers that they are not emotionally immune to all they experience in the course of a shift.

Some of the people we meet in the documentary are Kevin Davison, a paramedic/musician from Nova Scotia, whose hit song “When Those Sirens are Gone” has become an anthem for first responders; Vince Savoia, a former paramedic who, 20 years ago, had to quit his job after a traumatic call and now runs an organization that provides support services to first responders across Canada; Lisa Rouse, the Moncton dispatcher who took the nightmarish call of June 4, 2014, when three RCMP officers were killed; and Teresa Coulter, a Calgary paramedic whose done a series of paintings of fellow paramedics with PTSD.

Joe Mantegna and Page Brewster of the TV series Criminal Minds and other actors who portray first responders on TV are also featured in the film.

The documentary is the collaborative effort of three award winning individuals, actor Colantoni, film-maker Shopsowitz and producer Diana Warmé.

The Other Side of the Hero was produced with the support of the Rogers Telefund, The Canada Media Fund, the Ontario Media Development Corporation, CAVCO, and contributions from services and people all over the world through a successful Indiegogo campaign, which included generous support from The Tema Conter Memorial Trust and #IVEGOTYOURBACK911 as well as several other contributors.
