On the heels of his 12th Juno Award (Best Roots and Traditional Album, "Small Source of Comfort"), VisionTV will present an intimate look at the legendary Canadian songwriter and activist on Friday, May 4th .The production is called; "Pacing the Cage".

In 2008, Canadian music icon Bruce Cockburn set out on tour to make a live solo album, "Slice 'o' Life". Cameras followed the man whose legacy includes songs like Wondering Where the Lions Are, If I Had a Rocket Launcher, and If A Tree Falls, as he performed to sold-out crowds in benefit concerts across North America. The filmmakers also followed Bruce to his home for candid conversations about his views on topics from religion to new parenthood.

Cockburn says; "If I try to understand what it means to be a Christian, I look at the two instructions that were given in the Bible that are paramount, and those are to love God with all your heart and mind, and to love your neighbour as yourself. That's it."

Pacing the Cage sheds new light on Bruce's spirituality, and his thoughts on activism, politics, writing, and his life in the music industry. An Officer of the Order of Canada and Canadian Music Hall of Famer, Bruce Cockburn's important lyrics and strong melodies have graced 31 albums. He is a Christian, but his spirituality is universal. For over 40 years, he has brought Canada's attention to causes around the world. He was the recipient of the first ever Humanitarian Juno Award and continues to make music that matters.

Pacing the Cage includes never-before-seen live performances of songs from Cockburn's 40 year-plus catalogue of music. His long-time manager Bernie Finkelstein shares his insights, and best-selling Christian author William Young (The Shack), discusses how Bruce influenced his life and his writing.

Other appearances include:
  • Colin Linden
  • Michael Ondaatje
  • Bono
  • Sarah Harmer
  • Lt. Gen Romeo Dallaire
  • Sylvia Tyson
  • Jackson Browne
  • Theology Professor Brian J. Walsh
  • Blackie and the Rodeo Kings
  • The Wailin' Jennys

Pacing the Cage was produced by BB&J Productions for VisionTV. The documentary was written and directed by Joel Goldberg and produced by Joel Goldberg and Bernie Finkelstein.
