Description

One River. One Lake. Tom Thomson and The Group of Seven

Take a journey with Jean and Bob Hilscher, an Award-winning Canadian film producer, along the Oxtongue Waterway near Algonquin Park in Ontario, Canada. It was here, beginning in 1912, that landscape artists Tom Thomson, along with future Group of Seven members Lawren Harris, A.Y. Jackson, Arthur Lismer, Frederick Varley and A.J. Casson, began an artistic movement to paint the Canadian Wilderness. Over the course of three years, Jean and Bob canoed and filmed many of the actual locations where these artists once sketched and painted. Joan Murray, Canada’s leading art scholar when it comes to Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven, brings history alive as she relates the challenges that Thomson and the other artists faced out in the bush. But as we soon learn in “Painting the Wilderness of the Oxtongue”, the wilderness where these artists once hiked, canoed, fished, froze and got soaked to the hide in is still out there, and despite the hardships that they faced, Tom Thomson and the future members of the Group of Seven never stopped going to it. That is the challenge presented to all of us in this film: that the Canadian wilderness that these artists painted over 100 years ago is still out there, and it needs to be protected, and it needs to be used and valued.
