Jan Padgett

Writer/director Jan Padgett, co-director of Kla Ah Men: as far back as the story goes, is currently in production with Teeshoe, a documentary that focuses on a terrible marine accident, recreating it from the point of view of the 12-year-old boy who survived it. Previous writing and directing credits include, sticks and stones, in other words, an NFB production that looks at the impact of homophobia and name calling on children. Her six-part animation, The Reluctant Deckhand, follows the adventures of a young girl and her mother fishing BC's coastal waters. Deckhand garnered the Golden Sheaf winner for Best Children's Animation at the Yorkton Short Film and Video Festival.
