Canadian publisher and long-time friend of James Houston, Douglas Gibson, describe him as; 'the most interesting group of people you'll ever meet.' This quote inspired James' son filmmaker John Houston to film a tribute to his father that consisted of stories told by the people who knew him best. Out of this group of highly articulate storytellers, a portrait would emerge of the group that was James Houston.

The story of James Houston - a spirit for our times. One who recognized no boundaries. One who walked with Inuit and First Nations friends to the rhythms of nature, and also somehow understood the business of it all. He received knowledge, he gave empowerment.

His historic collaboration with the Inuit of Cape Dorset, which sparked world awareness of Inuit art, is cross-cultural communication at its best.
