"Jim Stewart is a world-renowned calculus mathematician and concert level violinist who is quietly revolutionizing the cultural landscape of Canada."
Jim Stewart, a calculus mathematician renowned as the most published author of mathematics in the world, a concert level violinist and a man partially responsible for the gay rights movement in Canada. In 2009, Shim Sutcliffe Architects completed a ground breaking private residence for Jim that had become internationally renowned and the focus of his philanthropic efforts. Part concert hall, part architectural wonder, the house has become a pilgrimage for architects and musicians from around the world playing host to a list of amazing concert performances. When Jim was diagnosed with terminal cancer a year into the making of this film, he undertook a direction to see the last days of his life lived out in a bold testament to his convictions. The Integral Man is a feature-length documentary that takes us inside this famous house and tells the story of a man who, despite making a difference in the world of arts and culture, is relatively unknown to the public at large.
Filming of the documentary will continue throughout 2015 with a completion date of Spring 2016.
