An intimate portrait of one of Canada’s most renowned artist, and the expansive landscapes that inspired him. Co-founder of the Group of Seven, Harris’ canvasses routinely sell at auction for several million dollars. Who was this man, 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 Canadian landscapes with bold brush strokes and brilliant colours?

Screens with local short film Lana Gets Her Talk (2016, Dir: Beth Wishart Mackenzie) & an exhibition by Candas Jane Dorsey in the lobby. Q&A with Beth, Lana, & Candas following the screening.
