A Painters Country In Search of the Group of Seven follows authors and wilderness photographers Joanie and Gary McGuffin, and art historian Michael Burtch as they search for the locations visited by Canada's most celebrated landscape painters who captured the spirit of the land, water, and skies of northern Ontario in the 1920's. Many of the Group of Seven's canvases and sketches have become iconic representations of the Canadian soul. Filmed on location in the Algoma region and along the north shore of Lake Superior, the film combines original photography, archival materials, paintings and re-creations. A Painters Country is the next film in a series of award-winning art documentaries produced by White Pine Pictures.
A Nostalgic Look at a Canadian Frontier through Art
Lake Superior Highlands,and Algoma Country have long been remote mystical frontiers.This film revives the nostalgic beauty of the region as captured through the art of the Group of Seven,and the dialogue of our contemporary actors and film crews.In addition,the musical score as a backdrop to the photography in the film is complimentary to the historic and natural panorama as seen by both artists and actors. Once again,we stand proud in the accomplishments of the Group of Seven,and the crews producing this film. Lake Superior and Algoma Country have a renewed place in the Canadian Artistic and Cultural world due to their efforts. As part of our heritage,this is a must see film.
