Lifted Eyes Media is a Toronto-based production company that creates documentary films. Our films are character-driven and use personal experiences to explore larger social issues.
Lifted Eyes Media has produced films on a variety of subject matter including terminal illness, mental health issues, unemployment and aging.
Rather than centering on expert opinion, our films explore these challenging topics through personal narratives. Our approach is rooted in the belief that the most powerful films explore complex issues through the eyes of those who have lived them. Lifted Eyes Media sets out to build narratives that help the public view social issues in a new light while they establish real connections to the people on screen.

John Letnick or “Captain John” gained notoriety in Toronto after opening the first floating restaurant in 1970, under the name of Captain John’s Seafood Restaurant. His restaurant enjoyed decades of success, before its doors were forced shut by the city due to unpaid taxes. What Remains is an exploration into Letnick’s loss. The film looks at both the triumphs and regrets that come with a long-lived life.
