Biography

Director, writer, art designer. Ohio-born, Halifax-based Burt moved from industry set decorating to personal filmmaking late in her life and left one narrative short honoured at Inside Out in 2003. Based on a 1964 autobiographical incident, This Boy (2002, 22) showed an 11-year-old tomboy and John-Lennon-wannabe Kit who gets into deep trouble, all because of her crush on her rosy-cheeked girl friend, but the cops and the collateral damage are all worth it when the crush turns out to be reciprocal!
