Ted Baryluk's Grocery

Ted Baryluk's Grocery is a 1982 short documentary about Ukrainian-Canadian Ted Baryluk's grocery store in Winnipeg's North End. Co-directed by John Paskievich and Michael Mirus and produced by the National Film Board of Canada, the film consists of Baryluk talking about his store, his customers and the changes in his neighbourhood, set against Paskievich's black and white still photography. It also chronicles his efforts to convince a reluctant daughter to take over the business, despite her fears about the store's unruly clientele. Baryluk's efforts to preserve the store were unsuccessful, as it closed shortly after the film's release.
