Where the Universe Sings: The Spiritual Journey of Lawren Harris
An intimate portrait of Canada’s most renowned artist, and the expansive landscapes that inspired him. Why was Harris so determined to battle the critics and paint a radical new vision of Canada with bold brush strokes and brilliant colors? Who was this curious man, raised in a family of wealth and privilege, whose notebook doodlings compelled a professor to suggest he try art studies in Europe? Why was Harris so determined to battle the critics and paint a radical new vision of Canada with bold brush strokes and brilliant colours? And what led this driven man to the spiritual realm of stylized abstraction?

“Doc fulfills its promise when Lawren Harris’ words wash over us as the camera lingers on his art. In these moments, the spiritual journey promised in the title comes alive.” Johanna Schneller, Toronto Star
