Charles Officer debuts doc about Canadian track star

Last week Mighty Jerome, a new documentary about former Vancouver sprinter and three-time Olympian Harry Jerome, had its world premiere at the Vancouver International Film Festival. It's the latest film from director - and sometimes actor - Charles Officer who didn't attend the screening because he was too busy catching up with us at the Young Centre for Performing Arts. (I'm sure he had other reasons to be in Toronto as well)
