ABOUT THE FILM
Lawren Harris is perhaps the best known of the Group of Seven painters, and currently the most valued by art collectors. His iconic images of mountains and lakes transcend representative art, becoming (as admirer Steve Martin says) “the theory of a mountain…the Idea of North”. But Harris moved on from even that simplicity of form to completely abstract art in a quest to convey his ideas about spirituality. Harris’ encounters with theosophy left him “in great need of losing my littleness, and sharing completely in the life of the universe”. His words and his magnificent art take us with him on the journey.
