Summary
Over the years Professor Cornett has won the respect and loyalty of scores of students with his unconventional approach to teaching. Whether it's a lesson on palliative care, First Nations issues or jazz improvisation, he challenges accepted wisdom while nurturing young people at a pivotal moment in their lives and teaching them to think for themselves. With her own keen interest in how society educates its young, filmmaker Alanis Obomsawin responds to McGill's controversial 2007 dismissal of Cornett with a tribute to this exceptional professor. Taking the unusual step of turning her camera on a non-Native subject, she draws upon the energy of Cornett's young supporters to reflect upon the virtues of an open mind and generous spirit
