On April 20th at 7 p.m., Grey Sauble Conservation Authority’s annual Earth Film Festival will be showing Painted Land at Owen Sound’s Roxy Theatre. Gary and Joanie McGuffin, hosts and co-producers, will be introducing the film with a short slideshow presentation on their research adventure with their partner, art historian, Michael Burtch, and a few fun behind-the-scenes stories during the making of the film with White Pine Pictures. The film recently won the 2017 Barbara Sears Award for Best Editorial Research at the Canadian Screen Awards.
During the morning and afternoon of April 20th, the McGuffins will be celebrating Canada 150 with 800 fifth and sixth graders. Through a visual and narrative presentation, the students will be taken on a great adventure to discover this Land of Water that we all call Home. Through the McGuffins journeys, the students will discover ancient trade routes, beautiful landscapes and how a 1000 km of the Trans Canada Trail came to be built along the Lake Superior North Shore.
