4Square Entertainment Ltd. was established in 1993 in Regina, Saskatchewan. It has since produced over 50 hours of film, including the eight-part SCARRED BY HISTORY, the three-hour series, WATER, WATER, the acclaimed feature documentary A CRUEL WIND BLOWS and the dramatic miniseries, REVENGE OF THE LAND.
The origin of our company’s name is symbolic of our interest in things Chinese. The founders were Gerald B. Sperling, a professor of political science and a journalist, Maggie Siggins, a writer and journalist, and Guo Fangfang, an established Chinese director who came to Canada in 1989. Fangfang’s name means Square Square in Chinese. Gerry and Maggie became the two other sides. Thus 4 Square Entertainment was born.
