Grande Prairie Live Theatre, 10130 98 Ave, Grande Prairie, Alberta

The Wake Effect First Responders Photography Project is pleased to present The Other Side of the Hero.

"The Other Side of the Hero is an independent documentary that takes us into the world of the first responder we rarely see: life out of uniform. Actor Enrico Colantoni, who played Sgt Greg Parker for five years on the international hit series Flashpoint, is our guide on this journey.

We’ll get to know first responders through their families, their spouses, their co-workers, and themselves; people who have experienced the flip-side of what can happen when a hero discovers that they are not emotionally immune to all that happens in the course of a shift.

Some of the people we meet in the documentary are Kevin Davison, a paramedic/musician from Nova Scotia, whose hit song “When Those Sirens are Gone” has become an anthem for first responders; Vince Savoia, a former paramedic who, 20 years ago, had to quit his job after a traumatic call and now runs the Tema Conter Memorial Trust, which provides support services to first responders across Canada; Lisa Rouse, the Moncton dispatcher who took the nightmarish call of June 4, 2014, when three RCMP officers were killed; and Teresa Coulter, a Calgary paramedic whose done a series of paintings of fellow paramedics with PTSD.
