Filmmaker Linda Corbett presents the magnificent mural works of internationally renowned Canadian artist, Jack Sures. As she examines his murals for the Sturdy-Stone Centre, the Canadian Museum of Civilization, the Mino ‘89 / International Ceramics Competition and other locations we grow to appreciate how Jack Sures’ art engages us outside the gallery in an art experience that celebrates the tactile connections to nature in our everyday lives.

Abstract expressionist musician, sculptor, sound poet, architect, videographer, zen buddhist, performance artist. Nobuo Kubota’s creative riffs resonate through all boundaries. Waves of rhythmic motion pulse through Chant as filmmaker Linda Corbett captures the work of the Vancouver-born intermedia artist and 2009 Governor General’s Award recipient. The resulting two-year collaboration is a potent, playful, visual and sonic feast.

The earthwork Field Horse stood 1,920 feet by 1,100 feet, 2700 hands high. Drawn on a canvas of winter wheat, canola, alfalfa, soybeans and corn - a mercurial artwork shaped by nature and by a community of artists and farmers. The fleeting image of this massive horse photographed by pilot Bob Douglas every week for over a year, mingled with stories from artist Joe Fafard and project coordinator Roy Hickling have found permanent form in this short documentary.

FIERCE EXPRESSION : the work of Tony Calzetta
presents the wildly original work of artist Tony Calzetta. Studio sequences with Calzetta painting and working with master printmaker Dieter Grund engage the viewer in the process of making art. In a series of candid interviews, Tony discusses how the struggle to be true to yourself in art and in life is at the core of his darky humourous aesthetic. An original music score drives the lively visual mélange including animations of Tony’s titillating titles, scores of paintings and drawings, insights from curators, art critics and fans, and archival photographs of the Bloor Street Diner project.

explores the inspiration, vision, and commitment of Ronald Bloore, the “simple painter” whose work helps define the history of modern art in Canada. A passionate commitment to painting so intense that in a moment of revelation he destroyed all his work and defiantly began to paint using only a palette of white. A boy who ran off to “join-up” at seventeen, a professor of Art and Archeology with two honorary degrees and an Order of Canada, a gallery director who mounted one of the most scandalous art exhibitions in Canadian history, and an artist who first found fame as part of the “Regina Five”.
“It’s a three letter word, is all I can say about art!”
- Ron Bloore
