A Painters Country In Search of the Group of Seven follows authors and wilderness photographers Joanie and Gary McGuffin, and art historian Michael Burtch as they search for the locations visited by Canada's most celebrated landscape painters who captured the spirit of the land, water, and skies of northern Ontario in the 1920's. Many of the Group of Seven's canvases and sketches have become iconic representations of the Canadian soul. Filmed on location in the Algoma region and along the north shore of Lake Superior, the film combines original photography, archival materials, paintings and re-creations. A Painters Country is the next film in a series of award-winning art documentaries produced by White Pine Pictures.
