In April of 1899, Vanya and Loosha Perverseff (the director's great-grandparents) came to Canada with 2,300 other Doukhobors. Simple, devout, mostly illiterate peasants, the Doukhobors were pacifists, persecuted by the Russian government for refusing to bear arms for Czar Nicholas II. The Perverseffs settled in Saskatchewan and started a new life as farmers with the assurance of freedom. In French: Les Doukhobors: Lutteurs de l'esprit
