Summary, etc.:
In less than one year University of Toronto Professor Jordan Peterson has gone from near anonymity to being lauded as the most important public intellectual in the Western world. How did this happen? Shut Him Down provides an intimate behind-the-scenes glimpse of Peterson's meteoric and controversial rise to fame as the film unravels his stand against preferred (trans)gender pronouns and political correctness, juxtaposed against the story of a young non-binary artist’s journey with social justice activism and fight for identity.
