An intimate portrait of Canada’s most renowned artist, and the expansive landscapes that inspired him. Co-founder and leader of the legendary Group of Seven, Harris has become the most valued artist in Canadian history. His canvasses routinely sell at auction for several million dollars.
Who was this curious man, raised in a family of wealth and privilege, whose notebook doodlings compelled a professor to suggest he try art studies in Europe? Why was Harris so determined to battle the critics and paint a radical new vision of Canada with bold brush strokes and brilliant colours? And what led this driven man to the spiritual realm of stylized abstraction?
Join Director/Producers Nancy Lang and Peter Raymont as they present this special screening of their film with a Q&A to follow.
