MURPHY, Jim
Film distributor, mentor, friend. Born November 13, 1947, in New York. Died April 13 in Toronto, following prolonged health problems, aged 59.
By David WEAVER and Dan LYON, Page L8
No matter whether Jim worked for companies large or small, his lifelong enthusiasm for filmmaking was undisguised.
He was a man utterly without an agenda - other than the promotion of good work - and when he believed in a project he was relentless in his efforts to see that movie made and distributed to its maximum potential.
This is no small achievement in English Canada, where the film industry constantly struggles to survive next to Hollywood. Jim never lost his taste for the battle, nor his conviction that in the long run, Canadian film would be recognized in our culture and around the world.
Even a limited list of the films Jim helped to reach the screen is astonishing: Margaret's Museum, Eclipse, Dead Ringers, Better than Chocolate, Ginger Snaps, The Art of War, Century Hotel, Suspicious River and Who Loves the Sun to name just a few. He was also largely responsible for finding and promoting the New Zealand film Once Were Warriors, which became an international success.
More important, though, was the sheer force of his faith in an individual as a filmmaker. Many producers and directors have related how, when self-doubt laid them low, he would remind them of their successes, make light of failures and point out that it was rare to be able to express yourself in this powerful medium.
He was equally effective as a cheerleader for his marketing and distribution colleagues. Such sermons almost always occurred over a beer. Or two beers. Or more than two. And that was part of the experience of knowing Jim as well - the pleasure of his company. It was a pleasure dozens of students would come to share through the classes he taught at Ryerson University and the National Screen Institute.
When required to surmount the odds, Jim would utilize both his superior intellect and his 6-foot-3 bulk to get in the face of anyone standing in his way. When his voice jokingly boomed "I blame you!" he was a force to be reckoned with.
Passionate about his love of Canada, Jim was born an American. He grew up in New York during the late sixties. He told remarkable stories about volunteering to teach in troubled neighbourhoods and finding himself under the protection of the Black Panthers when violence broke out. After he came to Canada, his first residence was at Toronto's notorious Rochdale College. It was all grist for Jim's storytelling mill.
Jim was, in the end, a man who made his passion his living. But even more than that, he made it possible for others to live their passion as well.
David WEAVER and Dan LYON are colleagues and Friends of Jim MURPHY.
