Complement the exciting themes and stories of Barbara Isherwood's Curious Minds series on The Women Who Made Modern Art with this screening.

An impressionistic exploration of the spirit that informed the solitary life of one of Canada's most celebrated and irrepressible painters. Emily Carr began painting in an era when women didn't, at an age when most people shouldn't, traveling to remote locations that few professional adventurers chose to go. Not only did she adopt the painting techniques of modernism, when such ideas were considered dangerous, Carr chronicled the extraordinary art and culture of native peoples, who were invisible to the dominant culture.
