If one of the planks in a documentary’s foundation is to teach us something about ourselves or others, this film is a perfect example. In this documentary we get to meet the very special Jim Stewart. He literally wrote the book on math and it made him wealthy. He used his money, in part, to build a fabulous home in Toronto’s exclusive Rosedale neighbourhood. A home shaped by his love of music and his desire to share. The architectural masterpiece is called Integral House. Integral Man tells a fascinating story of what one person can do to make a difference. Integral Man is, like the house that is at the centre of this film, a wonderfully constructed and executed vision.
