MAUDIE

Director: Aisling Walsh; Canada/Ireland, 2016, 112 min; PG

WINNER! PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD –Vancouver International Film Festival

The life of legendary Canadian folk artist Maud Lewis is painted in exquisite detail in this impeccably acted, incredibly affecting biopic. At the beating heart of Aisling Walsh’s film is Sally Hawkins (beloved for her performances in Happy-Go-Lucky and Made in Dagenham), who not only captures the contorted physicality of this self-taught painter, who contended with rheumatoid arthritis, but also exudes the creative spirit raging within her.

The film’s backdrop is undeniably cinematic: the rugged beauty and expansive vistas of 1930s Nova Scotia. Likewise, its primary setting is unspeakably intimate: the comically tiny one-room house that Maud shares with misanthropic fish peddler Everett (Ethan Hawke), initially as his housekeeper but soon as his wife—albeit still placing behind his dogs and chickens in terms of his favoured tenants. Undaunted, she’s inspired by the natural splendour surrounding their hovel to take up a paint brush.

Operating with no preconceptions of what “art” should be, her charmingly unsophisticated, uniquely one-dimensional paintings strike a chord with tastemakers and soon she’s a leading figure in the Naïve Art movement. Her exuberance proves infectious, ensuring that when she intones "I was loved" near the film’s end, we each count ourselves amongst those who adored her. –Vancouver International Film Festival

Origin Stories

First Nations Prints and Carvings

Guest curated by Jackson McDermott (Dene/Cree) with Gillian Booth and Katie Hughes.

As Canada celebrates 150 years since Confederation, the Legacy Art Galleries respectfully acknowledges a much longer history by presenting First Nations narratives that move beyond limited settler versions of history. Through prints and carvings chosen by guest curator, Jackson McDermott (Dene/Cree) from the Fort Nelson First Nation, the exhibition explores centuries-old stories that continue to live in the people, communities, nations and lands of this place.
