Summary
Seraphim "Joe" Fortes, born in the West Indies, became one of Vancouver's most beloved citizens. Using a colourful blend of music, poetry, cut-out and computer animation, this film celebrates Joe's life. For more than thirty years, Joe Fortes swam in English Bay. He was a self-appointed lifeguard at first, but he became so famous that the city of Vancouver finally rewarded him with a salary for doing what he loved best. He taught thousands of people to swim and saved over a hundred lives. Yet there were some who did not respect him because of his skin colour. Through his determination, kindness and love for children, Joe changed attitudes. This bright and lively animated film brings to life a remarkable person and introduces a whole new generation of children to a hero who was part of the early history of Vancouver
