VIFF 2016 Film Review: ‘Where The Universe Sings: The Spiritual Journey of Lawren Harris’


Where the Universe Sings: The Spiritual Journey of Lawren Harris is a VIP tour of Lawren Harris’ remarkable work, life, his creative process, and his spiritual journey.

Through photos, family memories, letters, expert opinions, and some of Lawren Harris’ own videos, we see his life in its entirety and watch the evolution of his work from representational paintings to abstraction, the creation of the Group of Seven, his friendship with Emily Carr, and his passion for the Canadian North.

Where the Universe Sings gives us the chance to see Canada through the eyes of one of our greatest artists… and what breathtaking visions they are.
