Integral Man (Ottawa Premier)

Regular Bytowne admission fee (All ages)


An Ottawa Premier, hosted in collaboration with Bytowne cinema.

Integral House is an architectural marvel in Toronto built by Jim Stewart, a music lover who made a fortune writing calculus textbooks. Integral Man, by director Joseph Clement, functions as both an inspiring tour of the home and a moving profile of Stewart, who gave architects Brigitte Shim and Howard Sutcliffe only two conditions: that the house have curves, and a performance space.

The home is stunning in every detail, from a staircase made of blue glass to a curved handrail wrapped in leather. Architects rave about the project, and friends sing Stewart’s praises, all while a meditative score lulls you into a trance. We see Canadian soprano Measha Brueggergosman performing in the house and the joy on Stewart’s face as he listens. There isn’t a critical word voiced in the film – about the house or Stewart. But that’s fine. This isn’t meant to be a critique; it’s a loving portrait.
