Bill Mason, Canada, 1984, 86 min
Follow naturalist Bill Mason on his journey by canoe
into the Ontario wilderness. The filmmaker and artist begins on Lake
Superior, then explores winding and sometimes tortuous river waters
to the meadowlands of the river's source. Along the way, Mason paints
scenes that capture his attention and muses about his love of the canoe,
his artwork and his own sense of the land. Features breathtaking visuals
and exciting whitewater footage, with a musical score by one of Canada's
most renowned musicians, Bruce Cockburn.
Special guest Karen Mackay, who appears in the
film, will be on hand for a Q&A after the film.
