Where the Universe Sings: The Spiritual Journey of Lawren Harris

Director: Nancy Lang, Peter Raymont Year: 2016 Run Time: 59min

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?
