Discover Ontario: Explore the province with fascinating docs and special guests. In this screening, visit Algoma.

One hundred years since the Group of Seven created Canada's most iconic paintings, little is known about the artists themselves. Past meets present in this beautiful film, energized by breathtaking aerial and landscape cinematography, exploring the rivers and lakes of Algoma and the land north of Superior. Painted Land weaves seamlessly the experiences of these artists with three modern day sleuths, Gary and Joanie McGuffin and Michael Burtch who are determined to find the precise locations the artists painted.

Filmmakers Phyllis Ellis, Peter Raymont and Nancy Lang will be in attendance for a post-screening Q&A.

Tickets are sold out. Rush tickets may be available 15 minutes before the start of the screening.
